Cool Timelapse Videos
Below are a couple of very interesting timelapse videos, created using still camera shots, an automated dolly system, and in some cases an astronomical mount to keep in step with the motion of stars over several hours times.
The first is my favorite and involves successive 30 second exposures of the Milky Way at night over a 2-3 hour period. I think the video speaks for itself.
Oh and both videos are recorded in HD, so go full screen and enjoy.

Video #2 is from the eruption of a volcano in Iceland in 2010. Considering the photographer only had a couple of days of good weather, makes it all the more amazing.
At some point I am going to have to work out the finer details of this technique and try it out somewhere in the Desert Southwest.
