Night time lapse movie showing, from inside and outside, Gemini South Telescope (8m diameter) at Cerro Pachon working at night. The two time lapse movie are synchronized to show you simultaneously the motions of the telescope and dome from inside and outside the enclosure. Better version directly on my web page : www.astrosurf.com/sguisard This time lapse movie shows the whole night accelerated by a factor 600x. note that the sound is not the real sound of the telescope (it is in fact very quiet), but the invention of musician artist Valère : www.space-music.net
