Spectacular time-lapse composition of Milky Way

The above time lapse composition of our Milky Way, which is composed of some 400 million stars, observed from the plains of Dakota, USA Randy Halverson is a spectacular show of the movement of our Milky Way as earth rotates. It took Randy almost a month to compose this beautiful time lapse composition.

Halverson also used Canon 60D and T2i cameras, and shot in RAW format. He used a Tokina 11-16mm lens, a Tamron AF 17-50mm lens, and a Sigma 20mm F1.8 lens. He said the Milky Way shots were 30-second exposures at F2.8 or F1.8 with two-second intervals between shots. It may be appreciated that a 10 seconds of the video below is actually about 2 hours and 20 minutes in real time.
