Archimedes crater (83 km) area is one to which we refer in these pictures. The crater has an edge like a thick collar, circular, and from its south are starting mountains with the same name, Montes Archimedes. They are organized into two rows, so noticeable in pictures.
Large area surrounding both crater and mountains, is Mare Imbrium. To the east of these mountains, is a small basin called Palus Putredinis.
The video was made with the camera mounted on the telescope, to be more exact on the telescope eyepiece. To protect the telescope from vibrations, I used a tracking motor from Lacerta, and thus the image was more stable.
However, even with this tracking device for celestial bodies, there were vibrations of the telescope tube, causing the image to be slightly unstable. For this, I used the video stabilization option in Sony Vegas editing software, so the video was 100% correct on this issue.
Unstable aspect of the image through the telescope is caused by a combination of turbulence in the Earth's atmosphere and increased streams of heat from the ground and buildings.
Images were obtained by attaching a camera directly into the eyepiece of an astronomical telescope of 8 inch Newtonian; For this reason the eyepiece visual field was increased.
