Twinkle-Twinkle: Observing Night Time Lapse

At the last observing night for Introduction to Astronomy, I set up my Ricoh GXR, a very handy and very compact camera system, on a tripod and set the on board intervalometer to record an image every five seconds. The next night I set the camera up again on my driveway to record the passage of Orion across the summer sky, in pursuit of prey or mates or perhaps some tea with rum in it (it was COLD!) I stitched those two timelapses together and set it all to a mellow post-grunge version of Twinkle Twinke Little Star.
