Visualizing the Earth’s Rotation With a Timelapse of the Milky Way

 

In this intriguing timelapse by Aryeh Nirenberg, the Earth’s imperceptible rotation is visualized by keeping the Milky Way Galaxy centered for the timelapse’s duration. As Aryeh described on YouTube:

 

A timelapse of the Milky Way that was recorded using an equatorial tracking mount over a period of around 3 hours to show Earth’s rotation relative to the Milky Way.
 
I used a Sony a7SII with the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 lens and recorded 1100 10″ exposures at a 12-second interval. All the frames were captured at F/2.8 and 16000iso.
