Schickard "cat's eye" astronomical video by telescope.

Eye of the cat in this video, is the crater Schickard. I say so, because I see that has this resemblance, but only when the crater is in the lightIt is on the southwest quadrant of the Moon, and has 227 km in diameter.

The video is not stabilized, and the area is shot at 500x to 800x with the video camera. Capture images from it are here.
