That is pure awesome. How long were your exposures, and what was your ISO? I suppose you don't have to be so strict about low ISO if you're shooting for a video.

Were you also the person buzzing around, taking pictures on the other camera?

Amazing. Looks like something that you would see at a science or space museum.

My exposure is 25sec per photo, 10sec interval and ISO3200. Roughly around more than 750 photos in this timelapse. Start from 7pm at night til 5am near morning in two parts.

Hahahaha.....yes, i am the one who buzzing around and take photos.

This is great. I tried to make a milky way timelapse last week but my lens fogged up after only 15 minutes
What software did you use to make the video?

Awesome! Did you use any tracking device? I guess with 8mm it's not needed...
