Mauna Kea Heavens Timelapse

1 like, 2 dislikes

Timelapse of the observatories atop Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The summit is at an altitude of nearly 14,000 ft and is the premiere site for astronomy in the Northern Hemisphere. As an astronomy graduate student at the University of Hawaii, I've enjoyed excellent access to the facility. Some of my favorite still images of Mauna Kea can be found at www.sgphotos.com/photostories/maunakea.

This montage was filmed on three nights in April (I was observing on one of the telescopes and would walk outside when things got boring) and four nights during summer 2013. More information (i.e. "What's up with the lasers?" "What gear did you use?") can be viewed at http://sgphotos.com/portfolio/timelapse/makingmaunakeaheavens/.

More of my timelapse work can be found here and at www.sgphotos.com/portfolio/timelapse. Please notify me prior to featuring my work.

Music: "All is Violent, All is Bright" by God is an Astronaut.
