Astrophotography Videos shown here are a combination of time lapse and still photograph sequences, captured by myself. I enjoy the use of video to add an extra element to astrophotography, combining music and images in a well choreographed manner to produce a specific atmosphere. I hope you enjoy the colleciton.
All these videos have a soundtrack, I suggest ensuring you have good audio available.
I had an awesome few months of astronomy & astrophotography – so what better way to sum it up than a short video designed to inspire? This is a short video I made for a training night at the Perth Observatory. It’s 3.5 minutes & has sound. Enjoy!
Jupiter and Moon Occultation 18th Feb 2013
Watch the Moon move in front of Jupiter, as it’s moons disappear and then re-appear. You can see some surface detail on Jupiter with the main bands quite clear, as well as nice lunar detail.
Photographed at the Perth Observatory this video shows time lapse and still photographs of the Total Lunar Eclipse December 2012.
Observatory One (automation)
I enjoy participating in astronomical research activities, and this is aided by a reasonable level of automation of my home observatory. Now and then it’s fun to sit back and watch this automation work nicely.
May 2013 Solar Eclipse
This video is a nice atmospheric representation of the May 2013 partial Solar Eclipse as viewed from the hills of Perth, Western Australia.
A fun video of time lapse photography showing Orion rising mixed with watching my telescope perform supernova searching.
