Astro-Porn of the Day: Amazing time-lapse movie

Just watch. One of the most gorgeous videos I've ever seen:

The Mountain from Terje Sorgjerd, who says, "This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain's highest mountain (3718 meters) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world's best observatories. The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies."

No kidding - I can't imagine how much equipment he had to have lugged up the side of that mountain to make these time-lapse, moving-camera films.

Wow. Thanks to gamera_spinning for the heads up.
