GoPro Night Lapse Tutorial

I give you the basic run-through of how to capture stars with your GoPro HERO10 or HERO9/ HERO8. These settings also apply to HERO7, HERO6, HERO5, and HERO4 – you just will have to manually compile the photos instead of the camera creating the video for you!

If you want to capture cityscapes or full-moon scenes with more light, you can lower your ISO Max to 100-400 which will reduce overall brightness in your scene, as well as noise. If you’re looking to capture the milky way, find a dark place away from city lights. Check a light pollution map like this to find zones near you – they may be closer than you think!

Gear I used in this video:

GoPro 3-Way 2.0:
