Capture: FullHD 30p "crop" movie, varying exposure time: 1/60s..1/100s (most 1/80s), 3200 ISO
Date: 2017-04-07 21:30 GMT
Sky: bad seeing + full moon + less than 30° alt, suburbs 10km from Paris, France

Edit: sorry, I just discovered that APNG animation was lost by SGL resizing down the image... damn! Fall back to GIF :(

Hello sorry - would you mind expanding on how you shot this? When you say FullHD "crop" movie and then varying exposure time - do you mean the length of the video or the shutter speed? Sorry, bit of a noob question!

Shutter speed. Each image in the animation was compiled from a separate video file, so there's many video files and each can have its own settings such as shutter speed -- though I would recommend to keep a constant exposure, it was an error of mine as I was searching for best settings.
