Wow! What an incredible response to my first video. I wasn’t expecting any of this. Thank you to all for your comments and ideas.
As I was browsing the blogs who had picked up this story, and reading the viewer feedback, I was given several ideas that were too good to pass up. One was to try another set of 1000 shots, only this time, have the camera pointing downwards, so dust or oil will have a more difficult time reaching the sensor. So that’s just what I did!
Shutter Speed: 1/60
Time between shots: 2 seconds.
