The Milky Way – an amazing time-lapse video

Plains Milky Way – The Heavens Declare the glory of God

During the month of May, the cameraman shot Milky Way timelapse in central South Dakota, when he had the time, and the weather cooperated. The biggest challenge was cloudy nights and the wind. There were very few nights, when he could shoot, that were perfectly clear, and often the wind was blowing 25mph +. That made it hard to get the shots he wanted. He kept most of the shots low to the ground, so the wind wouldn’t catch the setup and cause camera shake, or blow it over. He used a Stage Zero Dolly on the dolly shots and a “Milapse” mount on the panning ones.

Shot in RAW format, the Milky Way shots were 30 seconds exposure F2.8 or F1.8 with 2 second interval between shots, for 3-4 hours run time. ISO 1600

Ten seconds of the video is about 2 hours 20 minutes in real time.

Simon Wilkinson from thebluemask.com created the soundtrack “Exodus” for the video
