Slideshow of astronomy photos

I got bored so I made a video from some of my old astronomy pics. Many of these were taken with film through homemade wooden telescopes using home made motor drives from old tape recorders.

They are quite inferior to what can be achieved with modern equipment, yet they seem too nice to be locked up in a box never to see the light of day. I have many hundreds of photos like these.

Is it worth doing more vintage astro slideshows?

The music is the default background music from Magix Slideshow Maker. There's a whole 4 different ones to choose from, this one seemed to fit best. I must find some more royalty free tracks on the net for future clips.

That it is and thanks.

You can expand the photo details if you click on the "show more" button under the video for a more detailed description of each photo.

Absolutely stunning! I posted it on my blog with a link to this thread, hope that's okay.

You can try Jamendo for free music, though I think that track works fine for one video.
