Visit Worldwide Topsites

Copernicus Moon Crater filmed by astronomical telescope.

This is a video I have captured crater Copernicus (93 km) in unique circumstances for me in a light that I have never seen it. Observing this area through the telescope, is also subject to other articles, in which as usual, I presented simple video captures, but also Registax processings.

Copernicus's beauty is magnified because of its position on the center of the Moon, and in this way we see the round shape, as being above it. Here we can admire its dark inside and the outside in sunlight.

This video was also used in Registax program to process images with higher quality, but also for simple video captures.
Registax Photo Images are here.

The video was done with the camera mounted on the telescope, specifically on the telescope eyepiece. To protect telescope of vibrations, I used a guide 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.
