This is a compilation of panoramas, timelapses, and still photos that I have taken of the night sky in Maine and New Hampshire over the past couple of years. The timelapse sequences and spherical panorama animations were done with After Effects. The video was put together with Premiere Pro. All of it was edited from RAW files in Lightroom and mastered in 4K as 12-bit Cineform 444. At 50GB the master file is too large to share on the Internet with current technology though.
