    The Inyo range and White Mountain in particular is an awesome site for astro work. So dark and desolate. The Bristlecone pines are amazing-some are working on 6000 years of age. If you ever get a chance to go you gotta get there. Be aware that 11,000-14,000 foot elevation will kick you ass unless you prep for it.

    Every July the Tri-valley stargazers club goes to Barcroft station near the summit of White Mt. Great trip for a week of astro geekdom nirvana. The amount and quality of gear and the years of experience are mind boggling.

    I wish Panasonic would support tethering in a future Firmware Update so we can do this sort of work. I LOVE timelapse photography, and would much prefer to use my M4/3 gear to do it.

    A photographer for the Washington Times made this one of street scenes in D.C., which I found to be pretty amazing:

    Thank you for sharing that. It's a wonderfully made video of a city I love :).

    Nice. I played around with timelapse using a Canon 20D and DSLR Remote Pro but that was nowhere near the quality of these movies. This thread has me wanting to try it on my new kit.

    Can anyone recommend a timer remote for the G3, please? (Also a mains supply unit?! :wink:)

    :cool:

    So Canon gear are still good for something. :wink:

    Take a look at this video created in part using 52 Canon Rebel cameras:

    In theory it's straightforward to do with off-the-shelf software. Although it's not something I'd like to try in practice.:smile:

    Edit: just found a cheaper alternative. Maybe there's a bagful of older PowerShots cameras somewhere on eBay...
