What is Motion Time Lapse and Astro-Tracking?

We're so glad you asked! 

 

SOLOSHOT has made it easier than ever to fast-forward time and photograph the heavenly bodies. With SOLOSHOT3, you will be able to use the touch-screen interface to customize the values, and be ready to go with the touch of a button. 

 

Motion Time Lapse is a technique used in photography where you take several photos over a (usually extensive) period of time at various intervals moving slightly after each photo, then play it back at a faster rate so that continuous projection of the frames gives an accelerated view of the process with an added directional movement.

Astro-Tracking refers to a photography technique that is used to compensate for the rotation of the earth in long-exposures, so that you can track the stars, galaxies and sky without seeing streaks in your final product.

How do I program SOLOSHOT3 for Motion Time-Lapse and Astro-Tracking?

We have come a long way from SOLOSHOT2's method of programming the Base via a 2.0 USB stick to achieve these photography techniques. 

 

Everything will now be done via the Motion Time Lapse app or the Astro-Tracking app using the touchscreen interface on the back of your SOLOSHOT3 Base. You will input the values to customize your MTL or Astro to make it your own.
