nice cosmos .. how far from nearest city u was when u shot stars ?

Thanks guys :)

We were situated 38kms (23.6miles) as the bird flies from the city center? Aiming south east, the city was to the west.
Here's a still from the animation, there's a map on the right of where we shot :)

Combination of 2 different shoots to get this result :)

Most scenes were shot with a canon 10-22mm USM, and the 50mm f1.8? Used the auto bulb ramping for exposure settings and LRTimelapse to try and smooth out the flickering but still not up there with the editing ;)

All images were exported raw from Lightroom to mp4

I love the shot at 1min 33. not seen anything like that before. nice one
Thank you :) Using StarStax you can set it so every frame it loads, it saves that progress as a jpeg, so you get the sequence of star trails merging :)

I've made a video of a few of my time-lapses using Magic Lanterns Intervalometer function :)

Looking forward to next year, especially winter, to see how my TL's improve :)

General Help Q&A / Can I set the maximum ISO for bulb ramping?
« on: December 15, 2012, 03:18:43 AM »

I've made a few TLs since installing magic lantern - wonderful software btw! I've mainly been shooting city timelapses at sunset, but as soon as the lights come on the buildings they overexpose (up to 3200 ISO!!), here's an example - I've reduced the exposures on the lights but still wish I could do better:
So, can you manually set the maximum ISO for bulb ramping? I'd prefer it to adjust the aperture and exposure time, I usually use Manual mode.

This is on a Canon 600D, thanks in advance :)

General Help Q&A / Best sunset time-lapse setup?
« on: October 25, 2012, 11:06:21 PM »

Took these shots yesterday, 1.5 hours of footage (1 shot every 10 seconds) but still trying to figure out the best bulb ramping setting for sunsets? How exactly do the settings work? Notice all the exposure jumps, how can I set it up to make less or run smoother? After using LR Timelapse it done a pretty good job of smoothing it out in poist, but what's the best practice for getting the shoot right?


Final time-lapse:

As always, make a backup of your ML config and delete it. If the issue is solved it was probably a configuration "error" (like FPS Override being on,)

Cool thank you I'll try this tonight :) I haven't used FPS override yet but will have a look anyway.

Cheers  :o

Got this one last night, will do a bit more editing but it's getting there :)

350 images at 10 sec intervals.

The video is very confusing and I don't get the point. And I don't want to watch it 10 times to maybe get enough clues to see what you mean. Anyway one thing I saw is that there is no value set for AV+/- on the scale of -3 to +3. The camera seems to have trouble getting an accurate light metering while jumping around in the dark on a monopod and a cat.

The video explains pretty clearly what's going on. The live view is no longer live, move the camera and the live view will not update, but go white and glitchy. This is in manual mode, shouldn't need to set any AV+/- at all for live view to work.

I cannot reproduce. Sounds like camera locked up if LV frozen..  I've experienced the opposite problem actually, LV moves but controls frozen and battery has to be pulled.... not in normal operation though.

Hmmm, I've tried pulling the batter out a few times to no avail. I'll take a vid of the issue and post it tonight.

I've been running the latest version of Magic Lantern on my 600D for 3 days now, and yesterday when I tried to take a photo using live view, it would show a rough visual then stall, pausing the image but blown highlights and lots of noise. Move the camera round to see somewhere else and the screen won't follow.

How can I fix this?

So I got home yesterday and saw there was going to be a cool sunset, quickly downloaded and loaded Magic Lantern onto my 600D but missed the sunset :(

But that didn't stop me from trying my first time-lapse video :)

Int he 1st scene, how can I get the metering to be a bit smoother? It seems to jump in brightness every 40-50 images? Best viewed in 720p :)
