Keeping an eye out for anyone that would try and cause us trouble as we leave one of the FOBs. Trouble would be dealt with extreme prejudice:

    Wow! Splendid time lapse video. Can you describe your BTS technique? How many still frames?
    Thanks,
    John

    John,

    To make the time lapse I used a D800 with 24mm f2.8 lens. I set it to shoot manually at f5.6, ISO 3200, 1/15s. And then used the D800 time lapse video function to shoot one frame every 5 seconds. The camera then goes to town, and automatically makes it into a 1080p 30fps video. I do not have any still frames from the camera to stitch together. Once you tell the camera to stop shooting, or it hits the max time that it will allow you makes it into a video that you can view right there. It's an awesome feature.
