International Space Station Lunar Transit 1/21/2016 by Nico Carver, on Flickr

Mount: Astrotrac TT320X-AG in Lunar mode (this kept the moon roughly in the center of frame for 10 minutes as we waited,
Tripod: Manfrotto 055
Ball head: Oben 128 - caught it drifting a bit- might need a better one soon
Camera Body: Canon 5D Mark iii
Camera Lens: Canon 70-300mm f4-5.6 USM
Camera Settings: ISO 800, f9.0, 1/1000, 30 fps, Magic Lantern RAW- MLV container, 3x crop mode at 1920x1080 resolution

Extracted raw frames (.dng) from container (MLV) using MLVFS.
Used about 50 best frames- converted them to tif using Adobe Camera Raw (also did a batch crop)
Imported frames into Registax 6 (running in Windows 7 virtual machine), aligned, stacked, and played around with wavelets to increase sharpness of craters, saved as 16-bit tif.
Imported stacked tif into Photoshop, aligned with frames where the ISS was transiting and boosted saturation.

Shot this for a friend on the 5D Mark III.


In Resolve 12 Beta:
BMD Film->Cinelog C->output proxies (FCPX Roundtrip setting)

Offline edit in FCPX -> Export XML 1.5 back to Resolve 12 for grading

This workflow was incredibly smooth.  Questions and critiques both welcome!


Just a quick test of correcting and grading in Final Cut Pro X.  Not sure if I really need to use DaVinci Resolve?

Let me know what you think.

Thank you!

Too bad the stars were not in focus on the second sequence, the rest is breathtaking! How did you do the motion for the timelapses ? In post ?

It was done in the field with a Syrp Genie motion controller on a small Konova slider track.  I just take a few test shots and look at the RAW histograms and ETTR function in ML, then tell the Genie how long I want the timelapse to last, and set the interval.

Thanks for the comments!

Shot with 5Dmkiii, and Rokinon Cine lenses.  Used Magic Lantern's intervalometer, and raw histograms in most shots. A few were done with the Syrp Genie.  And there is one brief shot in an ice cave where I was using mlv_rec to record raw video.  I used the mlvrawviewer software to export to ProRes.  All the timelapse shots were minimally processed in Lightroom, then opened in After Effects as a camera raw sequence and exported ProRes 422 HQ.

I would welcome feedback, I love to learn, and have been lurking on this forum for awhile.
