Three-Hour Turbine Time-Lapse

Recorded this today from 11:05 am to 2:00 pm. We’re getting a nice progression of light, which is what I’m going for. I wanted a little softer feel than before, so I set the camera to shoot at 1/40 second to blur the blades a little. After watching the results I think I might have to sharpen it up a bit, so maybe 1/60 or 1/80 will work better.

And since all the images are basic jpgs, I was able to get a composite of all 10,674 of them:

The blades and most of the nacelle completely vanish, except for a vague white streak running at an angle away from the pole.
