This is a single frame of a spherical panoramic timelapse I took of the Milky Way over Hunter’s Beach in Acadia National Park, Maine, on the night of May 20, 2015. I programmed my Panoneed robotic head and Ramper Pro to shoot a 4-image panorama with a Nikon D810 and shaved Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye every so many seconds/minutes with interval & exposure ramping for almost 9hrs from sunset to sunrise. I took 832 photos until the Goal Zero Sherpa 100 battery powering everything was exhausted. I processed the RAW files to 16-bit TIFF with LRTimelapse & Lightroom to ramp the white balance using the Ramper Pro’s .xmp files for deflickering & exposure smoothing, and stitched them into 208 panoramas via PTGui’s batch stitcher using the Panoneed’s .xml stitching files. The finished timelapse sequence and behind-the-scenes video to shooting it can be seen here:
