Super Moon Timelapse

Timelapse photography has always amazed me and I have wanted to try it myself for a long time. Finally I have bought myself a timer/intervalometer (Canon TC-80N3) and have been learning the basics.

Last night I decided to try it out on the Super Moon. I set up the camera and tripod on my verandah to capture the moon as it rose in the east and as a bonus there was cloud moving across the moon in the opposite direction.


529 still frames
captured at 2 sec intervals

Canon 7D manually set to f4, 1/250s, ISO 100, 235mm, manual focus, manual WB (cloud)

Processed in Lightroom and created into video at 24fps (preset downloaded from )

17 mins of capture becomes 21 sec of video.

Viewed full screen it's not as smooth as I thought it would be for 2sec intervals, I might try another one at 1sec intervals and see how that goes.

Can't wait to try it out at some interesting locations.

Thanks for visiting,

Feedback more than welcome.
