We enjoy timelapse photography during the night. It is often nice to move away from the telescopes and look at the night sky from the broadest wide-angle perspective with only the naked eye. Add to that the motion of a series of images captured and played back as a video and the beauty of timelapse is revealed.
We own several Canon DSLR cameras. These work really well for astrophotography in the telescope eyepiece. Canon distributes software for the EOS cameras that allows you to operate the camera controls remotely and to set multiple exposures over a long period of time.
Lately, though, we've been using Raspberry Pi cameras to capture 100s of images in sequence. The images are then combined into video.
