               The guy is really amazing doing HDR time lapse. An inspiration for future work. Could't resist not to share!

                                                                                                      Enjoy!

That's amazing stuff. It's more than just timelapse, though. If you look at around 2.50 on the first video the Milky Way rotates about 15 degrees, which must be equivalent to about an hour, while the sunrise doesn't change. That's not possible. If he's combined a fixed image with timelapse at that point then it's a fair guess that there is other stuff like that all the way through. It looks like a very complicated technique.

I'm pretty sure that this orange light is light pollution coming from a distant city. Vapor sodium city lights produce a reddish-orange light that may have ended up that bright after some color or WB adjustments in post-processing.

I'm pretty sure you are roughly 100% correct peresanz. Even now where I am out in the country, I can see small towns and the "light pollution" when I look out at the night sky. It's only pollution to the people who would like a clear sky. To some people it's civilization and progress.  :) Take your pick.

Great time lapse work, and every time someone links to them, I'm amazed again. The blend of the lighting, natural and his own (in some cases), the motion, the choice of scenes. Just wonderful.

I'm still burning up the 20-D with the bad LCD in back. Camera works fine, I just can't see anything and have to make settings with a laptop, if it's in a menu. Cheaper to buy a used camera than fix it, so why not.

Last one was shot every 35 seconds for 30 seconds, night sky. Nothing nearly as pretty as the West or the desert. But practice and experimenting is the only way to get there. Shooting 10 Sec. / every 15 seconds, Perseid didn't work, that's why I moved up the ISO and the time.

Then he has tracks for the pan motion...

Just wonderful.

I tried stars also and it is not easy task, unfortunately I still did not complete the video into proper output. Definitely you have to go to high iso, 1600 is usually a minimum. You need to have aperture about 4.0 as most 2.8 lenses are too soft fully open. The best achieved timing was with 15 second shots and 3-5 second delays, otherwise you get gaps in star trails. Too short delays result in sensor overheating and irregular lags because of picture saving time. You should use RAW and shoot only in RAW format (turn off all those RAW+JPEG options) and also turn off all denoise programs.

If you take HDR photo of the foreground and then stitch all star shots timelapse and fit all togeher, you might get something like I di here http://www.fotoaparat.cz/index.php?r=25&rp=816084&gal=photo This shot is a composite of several hundred shots but all were real and made from one place during one session.

Everyone can! If you have camera, intervalometer and tripod you can do it very easy.

Oh that is easy. Start camera go away 2 hour. Edit pictures go away 2 hours. Make timelapse go away 2 hours. Save video. Everbody should do like the first guy does. It's so easy.
