Shooting the Moon

Live-blogging the shoot!

Using Processing to control the moon. The physical controls are nice, but limited in their capabilities. Very handy for Backpack Mode, so the kid can run around in the woods with the thing. But Processing allows for much more fine control, and better random number effects (and processing speed!) too.

Moon Timelapse Test

Shot this "manually" by holding down the shutter button until the memory card got full, hence the jumpiness. Or as I like to call it, the "hand-cranked aesthetic".

Just one more reason to get back to work on the Arduino intervalometer- Check out the Camera Axe page for more info.

The beautiful thing is that the original images are really big- 21 Megapixels big, in fact. 35mm movie print, anyone?
