Video-Eratosthenes crater and Sinus Aestuum

Video by: Victor Lupu
Optics: Celestron C8-Newtonian telescope, plossl 20mm, 2x Barlow
Mount: CG5 (EQ5)
Device: Sony CX105
Filter: No
Date: 11/05/2011
Location: Baia Mare, Romania

These clips are shot through my telescope at the date written above. I have delayed until now to post this crater, (photo and video), because I have not had clarity and I did not wanted to post something unsuccessful.And these videos are not much, but it is my best Eratosthenes up to this time. The secret, is the shadow as I said in other posts.In light there is clarity very rarely ,and only with a very good atmosphere.
Other features in these videos are Sinus Aestuum and a part of Montes Aprnninus.The video captures of this videis can be seen here.
