Here's a first attempt at an aerial time lapse at night.

Turned out pretty decent in the first few seconds. Got quite blurry as the gimbal moved up towards 0º.

Used Litchi with a speed of 0.5 kph between waypoints, manual exposure at iso 100 and 2s, one photo every 4s (was actually a little longer due to processing). About 12 min flight time (9 or 10 of those were shooting).

 
Looks very good. Should have probably kept the gimbal angle fixed for better results.

I didn't by accident. I actually set both waypoints as gimbal -90º, but the second one didn't "stick" so it interpolated from -90 to 0. Still, the main objective was to see how it went, so it was useful as an experiment :)
I think you're onto something. Keep at it and let us know how it goes. Thanks for sharing.

Great video! You don't realize how much time lapse videos condense, until they're finished. Can't believe that was 12 full minutes of flight time!
