El Cielo de Canarias 2012 / The Light of Stars

Hi, I’m Joe, and I’m a time-lapse video addict.

This one takes us to the Canary Islands, one of the world’s richest skywatching spots thanks to its isolation from urbanization. It also takes you behind the scenes a bit, demonstrating the camera rig setups that go into creating such beautiful shots.

Full screen, HD, speakers up … you know the drill. 

Bonus: Watch for the distorted moon-rise!
