Video from DakotaLapse.com

*************************************EXCERPT**********************************

The man who creates these videos is Randy Halverson and he runs a website called DakotaLapse.com. He does this time lapse video as a hobby and he was recently featured on the Eye on KELOLAND segment on KELO here in Sioux Falls recently. This is some amazing stuff. This is best watched on full screen.

Temporal Distortion.

I see that all the time when watching Youtube videos. I think it is their media player interface. The picture freezes or colors streak down the page like an LSD trip, sound gets out of ‘time’.

During a drive over into West Virginai, heading for the Greenbank Observatory, I drove into a valley surrounded by low hills one night. It was a Moonless cloudless night in early October, air temp about forty degrees, 11:30PM. I had to stop the Rodeo and turn off the lights and get get my then wife out to witness one of the most amazing sights I had even enjoyed. There was no ambient light in the visiaul field naywhere in that little valley. The Milky Way was stretched from horizon to horizon and the starlight was so bright that I could point out cows in the distance and when I dropped some change on the ground digging out my keys, I could see that I had only dropped pennies! We stood at the rear of my vehicle for twenty minutes, just awestruck, until a vehicle happened over the horizon, coming our way on the road. I got the most amazing feeling standing there, like I was standing in the bottom of this ginormous drinking glass and was so tiny and so far away from all that light that I was invisible. I suppose that’s what ‘they’ mean when they say they were immersed in the beauty of something. Only had that experience one other time.

Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly and Stage One Dolly

***************************************EXCERPT************************************

I’ve been using the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly for over a year, and on dozens of timelapse setups. In my opinion, it is the best dolly made for shooting timelapse, and the price can’t be beat. The MX2 controller does a lot for such a small package, and has performed excellent in extreme conditions.

The 6 foot rail will give your timelapse a lot of motion, and gives it the “walking through it look”. I have let it bounce around in the back of a pickup on rough gravel roads, dirt roads and even off-road. I’ve hauled it on the back of a ATV through brush, used it in sub zero weather, and even dropped it a few times. In all of that use, I may have lost a few thumbscrews, but the dollies have performed great.

I am affiliated with Dynamic Perception. If you order one, please mention “dakotalapse sent you“, then let me know in the contact form below. Feel free to contact me with questions about the dolly, or the settings I use.

The dolly is just part of the equipment of course....

Camera and aa computer are used.

Not finding what I saw some months ago where he described his setup.

Stage Zero Dolly with Orion head set up used in Plains Milky Way

Now have a clue:

See this:

Orion – motion controlled night timelapse

***********************************EXCERPT******************************************

Wired.com article Robo-Camera Rig Animates the Night Sky

Taken in central South Dakota in late march-early april. It was the first time I’ve had the chance to use an Orion head mounted on the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero dolly. dynamicperception.com

Orion head (aka Merlin or Celestron) telescope head allows for an ultra slow pan and tilt of the camera while it moves slowly along the dolly. The MX2 controller from Dynamic Perception also controls the Orion head. It wasn’t used on every shot, because it just wouldn’t work for it, or the shot was from the second camera mounted on a “milapse” telescope head. It works great with the MX2 controller from Dynamic Perception and I’ll be using it as often as I can. I tested the included controller with the Orion and found it was a little too fast for night timelapse, but with the MX2 controlling it, it worked great.

***********************************Snip********************************

Shot in RAW format, most shots were 25 seconds exposure F2.8 with 2 second interval between shots, for about 300 frames or so (several hours). There were a few 30 second exposures. ISO 1600

Looks like a Canon EOS 5D series (can’t tell if it’s an original, a mk II, or a mk III). Separate vertical grip attached to the bottom, which also contains batteries for greatly extended operation time.

The glory of the heavens. I guess the usurper will make mention that he invented all those things in due time.

WOW
Youtube has some high quality video there thank you. You need to change the resolution bottom right hand side to HD.
