In addition to our still imaging, Full Moon Photography is a master at time lapse animations. The links below will take you to various animations of the night sky, often at observatories in Southern Arizona. Most last from dusk until dawn.

Still images from most of these animations are available as prints. If you don't see them in our galleries, please contact us for more information.
