This timelapse movie shows the milkyway on La Palma (Canary Islands). World's largest reflecting telescope is at work.


This timelapse video shows the Gran Telescopio Canarias, world's largest reflecting telescrope at work. While the sun is going down, the sky and the clouds get colorized in spectacular colors for a short time, but then the stars rise. Just a few moments later you can see all the stars and the milkyway. After the last clouds disappeard, the milkyway takes part in the game. A nice detail to notice: When the sun rises again, the Roque de los Muchachos throws it's shadown onto the layer of clouds in the front!

Trish, running water lines might make that cpomlicated. I'd settle for battery-powered motion-triggered strobes. Ruby, that works in theory. But for it to be practically applicable and consistently repelling it would have to be done on a pretty regular basis, which shy or not I'm not really up for. If I just one-time it the message that's primarily being received after a day or two by the coyote is that of a faded threat, that I've marked and moved on.

Nicht gerade eine photometrische Nacht, aber eine Klasse Aufnahme! Ich habe 1978 vier Wochen auf diesem Berg zugebracht - damals gabs das GranTeCan natürlich noch nicht, die Wolken aber schon. Der Bergschatten bei Sonnenauf- und untergang ist mit dem Teide auf Teneriffa ähnlich spektakulär.

Klasse Video, und tolle Location. Deinen Dolly habe ich schon beim stöbern im Timescapes Forum gesehen. Gute Idee und transportierbar (wenn auch wohl nicht ganz billig) ;). Mir schwebt ähnliches vor, aber ich würde ihn auch noch gerne mit einen Pan/Tilt Kopf ausrüsten (Servos). ..Ist aber noch in der Planungsphase...am Anfang ;) LG, sebastian
