That's why you don't leave your camera alone for hours to record a time lapse
Capturing one of those gorgeous time lapse videos of the night sky takes hours. So, what do you do while you're waiting for all those exposures to happen?

Swiss photographer Alessandro Della Bella took the latter approach while recording the Perseids meteor shower in August — and while he was away, one of his cameras captured its own thief.
