Lovely, if it was me, using video technology what you would do here would be to use the highest resolution you have, at least 4K (8megapixel), preferably higher.  Run the camera at a low 'image angle', i.e. a fast shutter speed relative to the frame rate, a high frame fate, camera on tripod. Run the footage through a frame grabber and then combine the images.  sounds easy but there is a lot of trial and error in doing this. The average DSLR I suspect is not the right tool here, but the current better end of mirrorless for video, say a Canon R5 or Lumix M43 offerings (G9/GH5) would be able to do this. The R5 would do 8K video (35megapixel images), the G9 almost 6K video (18 megapixel images). The latter can do this for 10mins at a go at 30 fps and does not overheat when doing so. Timeframe and Fps for the R5 would be similar but output is higher quality but they are known to have overheating problems when doing this.  A shuttered camera taking the 18,000 images that are delivered by this method would not last long even if it could do it.
