    yeah, all the time as with that photo I posted above

    the usual way is just to do a string of timed exposures, as Marko did

    Back from vacation, busy doing class prep. It was cloudy every night, so I ended up making timelapse 'videos', here's two of them: one frame was acquired every minute, starting around 6pm and going until I passed out around 2am

    A good one, managed to hold a constant exposure during an illumination change of 24 stops:


    The best one- see the (near) full moonrise, a thunderstorm, lots of activity.


    Enjoy!

    5 hours of viewing (400/2.8 ISO 640) over the past 2 weeks:

    A few images of the starfield in Cygnus: the first one is about 3 fields of view at 400mm (full frame) covering most of the North American nebula and the second is the veil nebula, nearly filling a single field of view (at 400mm). The density of stars is really striking.
