    Also, for anyone with a Canon crop sensor (APS-C) it's a 1.6X crop factor. And for anyone with an android device, I recommend an app called Sun Surveyor. Very similar to Photo Pills, but for android.

    Great video, from my experience though anything more than 20 seconds or so on a crop sensor camera like my Canon 50D and the 70D you get enlongated tic tac shaped stars. I usually go 15 secs or 20 secs both work out pretty well except the 15 sec ones are bit darker and less crisp. The 28-135 and 18-55 work good as well as my 55-250. 18-50 seems best even though it's lowest setting is fl3.5. I'm gonna bet if I borrow my friends 70-200 2.8 IS I'd get some interesting shots.

    You speak too quickly without interruptions. Speakers in a different language must slow down your video.
