Movie! Views from Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory
This is a five minute time-lapse movie I made during my three trips to observe for the DES between 2016 and 2018. Once per hour I had to go outside for 15 minutes, let my eyes adjust and then document the seeing conditions. This allowed me some time to pick nice views and set-up my camera to click away an automated sequence if images. Those images were used to make the movie.
Over the end of 2018 I spent a lot of time making individual clips in Photoshop. After that I rested - making the clips is both tedious and computationally consuming. In early 2019 I began the task of making a five minute movie, which as it turns out, is much harder than it sounds. Including the time the shutter was clicking there is about 200 hours of time put into this 5:38 video.
This is my third attempt to edit the thing. I was in a funky mood when it came time to pick a sound track. :-)
