Time lapse video by Elias Politis, uppermost, and single image composite of same, immediately above. It’s NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day for June 25. Not sure I can get 100% behind “Acropoclipse,” but otherwise: Magnificent. [via adafruit]

    “Not sure I can get 100% behind ‘Acropoclipse,'”

    I know, right? “Acropoclapse” is way better. Kind of ties the whole thing together. :)

    Time lapse is cool, but an arduino powered motion control time lapse would be better. I’ve been playing with a fellow Maker’s new product and it is a fun little pan / tilt motion control time lapse camera rig that is actually configured using a wii controller.  It’s called the emotimo PT and it is the quickest and easiest way to start shooting time lapse shots with motion control http://www.emotimo.com
