I set up the camera to take a 30 second exposure every 33 seconds, so there is 3 seconds between each picture. Each picture is at F/4, ISO-100.
I set the camera to take 109 pictures, so the entire time span is 60 minutes. Time range is 8:45pm to 9:45pm.
I then used a program called Image Stacker to stack up all the pictures, and this is the result.
Then I wondered if I could make a time-lapse animation using the 109 images. Sure enough, I could! It is below, in the form of an animated .gif. It runs at 10 frames per second, so the hour's worth of pictures plays in about 10 seconds.
The .gif file is about 53MB, so it may take a minute for all the frames to load.
