Re: Time lapse at Gayle Beck Lodge

Hi Sean With a Holy Grail time lapse like the first clip in this video there are two distinct interval times to set. The daytime interval is 14 seconds and the night time interval is 30 seconds, this is set on the Timelapse+ view intervalometer, as the exposure time during the day is shorter you can...

Re: Time lapse at Gayle Beck Lodge

Hi Doug Thanks for the comments, the lights were a bit distracting overall but they did light up the lodge nicely;-) It is Orion in the lens ball as you mentioned, the lens ball reverses and makes the image upside down so it creates a nice effect in that the movement is the opposite of what is in th...

Time lapse at Gayle Beck Lodge

On Tuesday of this week I spent the whole night up by Gayle Beck Lodge near Ribblehead in the Yorkshire Dales shooting some time lapse clips and single shot frames. The lodge is an old ruined hunting lodge which sadly has fallen into a very dilapidated condition, but it has a history behind it which...

Re: January Astrophotography Contest

Hi Here is my entry for January, it is a single frame shot taken at Ribblehead Viaduct in the Yorkshire Dales. I took it while I was doing some time lapse work on Sunday evening. This was taken with a Sony A7Sii and Samyang 12mm f2.8 fisheye lens. The exposure was 30 seconds at f2.8 and ISO 6400. I ...

A night under the arches

"A night under the arches" I went back to Ribblehead Viaduct last night to shoot some time lapse, animated star trails and some slightly different views of the viaduct, I didn't attempt any Holy Grail time lapse as I only had time to be there for the hours of darkness. It was clouded over and very w...

16 hours at Brimham Rocks timelapse

I spent the night at Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire shooting another "Holy Grail" time lapse (day to night to day). Although it is a lovely area to shoot from scenery wise, it wasn't as dark as I was hoping and there was a fair bit of light pollution from Harrogate and the skies were a bit milky s...

I spent last night at Ribblehead Viaduct in the Yorkshire Dales shooting another "Holy Grail" time lapse, this time I wanted to go all the way and shoot a time lapse that went from day to night and then back to day again.

"Holy Grail" time lapse

I was out all last night by Nidd Gorge in Harrogate shooting a "Holy Grail" time lapse (time lapse that runs from day to night, night to day or day to night to day, etc). It is technically difficult to do because there are many exposure changes required during the period in order to take into accoun...

Ribblehead Viaduct Time Lapse

I spent the night at Ribblehead Viaduct last night shooting some time lapse, star trails and an animated star trail. After selling my telescope gear (no space to use it since moving to Harrogate), I used some of the money to buy myself a hiking trailer and a drone. The trailer means that I can carry...

Hi Last night the weather was good so I decided to spend another night in the very beautiful area of Nidd Gorge. This time I wanted to take some pictures and a time lapse of the viaduct with the night sky. The moon was almost full and it was to the left of the scenes as you look at them. I started s...

Re: Milky Way and a pool full of stars

The other thing that the Sony has as an advantage is that it has relatively large pixels as it's only a 12.5 megapixel sensor. Looking at the picture I posted, it looks terrible at 800 pixels wide, I should have put a link in
