Rumble / Time LapsesThe rise of the Milky Way over the Santa Rita Mountains. Taken from east of Green Valley, Arizona.

Using a GoPro Hero 9 in Night Lapse Video mode. Settings: 4K, Lens Linear, Auto Interval, 15 second Shutter, Bit Rate High, White Balance 3200k, ISO Min and Max 3200, Sharpness High, GoPro Color.

Scheduled capture started at 1:45am. Not being much of a middle of the night person, this capture would not have been possible without the schedule feature of the Hero 9.

Two apps were of great help in lining up the shot. The Photographer's Ephemeris and Photo Pills.
