This video was made by ALEX CHERNEY, Alex lives in Melbourne, Australia and is an active member of Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society. Alex is a software developer during the day and a keen astronomer and photographer at night with a particular interest in time-lapse photography.
The video was taken in at a star party in August 2009 where he took his (Alex) exposure photograph of the night sky. The story is that Alex was so thrilled with the results and he dedicated most moonless weekend photographing two things that he loves the most in nature - the night sky and the ocean.
What he did was he takes a series of images and combining them into a time lapse video sequence made it even more interesting and experimented with all-night time lapses, panning motion and etc.
This time lapse video is the result of almost 1.5 years of work, 31 hours of taking images during six nights on Southern Ocean Coast in Australia and he enjoyed the journey very much. Then later the Ocean Sky was awarded the overall winner prize at STARMUS astrophotography competition.
