comment What is “bokeh panorama” (also called the “Brenizer method”)?
Thanks for this very detailed answer!

comment How can I simulate a long exposure photo using a set of shorter exposure photos?
That is a great idea, because the noise produced in a shorter exposure, will be averaged in the stack. Or I think so...

comment Intervalometer ideas?
I specially like the idea of taking aerial photos with a kite, but I'm concerned about any damage to the camera caused by a fall. It seems I'll have to figure out how to make some kind of box to soften the hit, or a parachute could be also a good idea. Do you use any protection?

comment How do I reduce noise, given that I have complete control over everything else?
"effectively simulating the result of using an ISO setting lower than the camera could ordinarily produce" That could be the conclusion we can extract from that experiment... Was that was already known?

But how can I be sure I won't blow highlights?

comment How to fill my time-lapse video with more frames?
Yes, but a second (or third) battery wouldn't help if I'm running out of battery in the middle of the timelapse. It'd be helpful in the case I want to start a new time-lapse right after the other.

@jrista: The fixed pattern noise you're talking about, is the one corrected with dark frames, right?

Well, I used I tripod although it's a Chinese brand (and also very thin) so the quality is questionable. To shoot the photos, I used a script so the movement is between each set (when I press the shutter) but there should be no movement between the photos inside each set. And last, remember my camera is a Point and Shoot so the overall quality will not be the same compared to a DSLR.

My merging approach is just deleting noise. If I'd want a higher dynamic range in my image, I would have taken different exposure photos and then yes throw them to the fantastic enfuse! In this case, I don't think enfuse could do something better than plane averaging.

I've never used a script in Gimp. How would I execute it? From the command line, or from the program. Should I save that as a script?

That's not what I would want for stars. Because they'd be averaged with the other frames, making the sky empty!

I think I've done the same experiment. Check my EDIT
