Visit Worldwide Topsites

Craters on the surface of the Moon Eratosthenes, Sinus Aestuum, Gambart.

These images include a larger area of the center area of the Moon.
Craters and other areas of relief observed while watching the clip, are: Manilius, Mare Vaporum, Sinus Aestuum, Eratosthenes, Stadius, and Gambart.

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.
