Harvest moon(ish) timelapse

In September I was looking forward to capturing the Harvest moon in timelapse, this is the first full moon closest to the autumnal equinox and is unique in that it appears  early in the evening, and very low on the horizon. This creates an optical illlusion whereby we percieve the moon to be much bigger than it actually is.

I had purchased an intevalometer from GentLED and attached it to my Nikon D70 then set up my tripod in the back garden with the camera pointing towards the skys.

Here is the result

However I was a day late and could only film after getting home late in the evening, so this is not in fact the harvest moon :( nevermind, I will try again next year…
