What did you use to compile?
Good footage doesn't make a story any better.

Here's my 2nd Attempt.

Now Pointing at Celestial South Pole since we can't see the north star (polaris) here in New Zealand.

This is actually a failure. Just rendered and processed 60 out of 140+ photos. The rest are all fog up!  Lesson learned always check your camera and temperature to prevent fog shots.  -- but in spite of that, the photo turned to be ok, do you agree?

Hi, I use StarSTax to compile my images. Pretty Good Software!

I like to use the chemical handwarmers. I wrap them up around my lens with a sock. They usually last all night and pretty are cheap. I live in the southeastern US, where in the summer, humidity barely drops below 95%... during the day!

The spaceship called "Earth"... or a humongous carousel, take your pick. :)
