Photographer Aryeh Nirenberg has captured many stunning images of the Milky Way Galaxy over the years, but this latest time-lapse video could be one of the most beautiful.

More specifically, the equatorial tracking mount was used over a period of around 3-hours to show Earth’s rotation relative to the Milky Way Galaxy. A Sony A7SII, paired with a Canon 24-70mm f2.8 lens, recorded 1100 10″ exposures at a 12-second interval with all frames captured at F/2.8 and 16000 ISO.
