Here is a minor edit to the excellent video by Stephane Guisard and Jose Francisco Salgado, posted at Nicolas Bustos channel. Visit http://eso.org for more about the European Southern Observatory.

The minor edit is to move the frame of the video so that the stars stay in the same positions relative to the eyes of the viewer while the frame moves around them. That's all. No CGI. No motorized cameras (although that would be cool).

Credits for original video:
ESO/José Francisco Salgado (http://www.josefrancisco.org)

The time-lapse starfield has been edited to show the rotation of the Earth from the point of view of the stars.
