I’ve been playing with some time-lapse photography lately. There’s really two things you can do with time-lapse, make a video, or stack the images and get a single dynamic image.

I’ve done the latter of the two in this image. It’s around a thousand images taken at five-second intervals over the course of a few hours. The stacking software is StarStaX 0.6 in Lighten blending mode. The moon ends up horribly over-exposed because the camera’s exposure is automatically set for the dark skies and low light of the stars and aircraft.
A few hours of fireworks, aircraft, stars and the moon.
