Moon craters in light-Tycho's rays

Photographer: Victor Lupu
Optics: Celestron C8-Newtonian telescope, plossl 20mm, 2x Barlow
Mount: CG5 (EQ5)
Device: Sony CX105
Filter: No
Date: 13/04/2011
Location: Baia Mare, Romania
Processing: Sony Vegas 10 captures video

In this video captures of the Moon are craters of the south in light.It is harder to shoot craters full of light because in these conditions it is more difficult for the camera to distinguish what it sees, and so the focus becomes ticklish.It is easier for a video camera to focus the craters that are in shadow, or have at least some shade because the sensor is looking to catch contrasts of black and white  to focalize.I chose caprures especially where the focus was best.What seems most successful is the ray system which starts from the crater Tycho, the white visible "swords"  in some photos, which are lighter and crosses over the craters.
Large craters in these pictures are: Walther, Purbach and Regiomontanus, Blanchinus , Werner and Aliacensis, Stofler, Fernelius (65 km) and Orontius.
