360x180 degrees, equirectangular projection, so you see the entire sky.  The other two have about 200 degrees horizontally.

Full sky coverage using four cameras:

Those are the same cameras you told me about, Mid, the one you use for your meteor network?  Excellent image quality!

That snowstorm I told you about is going to begin in a few hours and last two days.  I've been trying to get my cameras ready both for stills and video to capture this rare pre-Christmas event.

Yes, these are for the meteor network, and anything else that might happen in the sky.  Four 5 megapixel cameras cover the entire sky.

Yesterday's timelapse from one of our meteor stations in the forests north of Oslo.  Winter has come with lots of snow and temperatures around -10C.

Watched the video 5 times. The play of light and glare soothes and bewitches. And while the whole earth is covered in snow. Just like a picture from a fairy tale. Upload more of these videos - time-lapses are always very interesting to watch.

Glad you liked it.  Here's another one that I made a few years ago.  Maybe I've posted it before, though.

I've been working on spaceships lately but I'm not very satisfied with the result.  Especially the biggest one, looks kinda "fat" and "flat"... Unfortunately I can't change proportions because I already made the interiors and the cutscenes inside (?)

Any suggestion?

Some nice bird watching today. In addition to the usual eagles, harriers, and herons, there were a pair of short-eared owls skimming about.

Wow Wat how do you get bird in flight shots?  I usually focus on a favorite perch or feeder and take pictures as they take off and land.

Skagit Valley to the south of me is full of marshes and farmland which make for a bird-watchers' paradise. It's not hard to get good shots out there, and it's common to see a lot of other bird watchers as well, often with very impressive equipment. I just use my old DSLR and telephoto lens, sometimes using autofocus and sometimes manually.
