solar tracker time lapse

Day long time lapse of my solar tracking rig. Four 100 watt panels from Renogy Solar mounted on a DIY frame attached to an old satellite dish mechanism. Tracking is accomplished by a cheap little one axis circuit from HomeCSP driving a 12 V linear actuator. The tracking circuit reorients the panels to the east overnight. The video was compiled from 656 photos shot at 640x480 with my Samsung Galaxy Tab3. I used a free Android app with an intervalometer called Camera FV-5 Lite shooting one picture per minute from 7:53 AM until 6:49 PM. The photos were combined in Windows Movie Maker and rendered at .07 fps. Final editing was done in Adobe Premier Elements 8.
