Radio Telescopes and Star Trails: A Time-lapse Video

By Jason Fitzpatrick on January 21st, 2013

This beautiful time-lapse video frames Australia’s newest radio telescope array against a backdrop of stars.

The telescopes seen here are part of the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) located at the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory in Western Australia. The video was produced by photographer Alex Cherney over five nights using three cameras and snapping 19,960 photos.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
