Milky Way From Whytecliff Park
90 frames x 30 seconds each is roughly 45 minutes of tripod time. I first started shooting at 13 second exposures and it took me a few minutes to realize my mistake (those frames were discarded). The camera wasn't very level when I shot it (hard to get right when so much of the frame is black) so these images are cropped.

Waiting For The Northern Lights
The dust spots on the sensor are kind of painful.

Porteau Cove Facing North
The flow is from Squamish. There is one asteroid streak in this movie.

Star Trails Facing North At Porteau Cove
These are 30 second exposures stacking in photoshop. There are 75 images here so about 37 and a half minutes. (It's actually longer because there is a gap between one image ending and the next starting. The bright stars on the right are the handle of the big dipper.

You can see a single shooting star in this image.

Looking South Over Ferry Jetty
This is a shorter exposure than North - 72 exposures, roughly 36 minutes. I thought the glow from the city would be worse than this, but the city is around the corner with a mountain in the way.

You can see some airplanes near the horizon - they are likely going to YVR. You can also see that the equator is roughly in this image - the south pole is well over the horizon.

Thunderstorm Over Vancouver
I really like that you can see the stars at the top of the frame for roughly half of the movie. This is roughly 200 frames at 20seconds each (every 21 seconds) for a little over an hour of time. The camera ran out of battery power as it wasn't fully charged when it started.
