Visit Worldwide Topsites

Images by astronomical telescope Moon craters Pitatus and Wurzelbauer (video).

In this video, the telescope was stopped over the western part of the Moon. We see some craters that I have not considered so large on other occasions, but at this stage, the shadow's edge of Wurzelbauer (88 km) and Pitatus (97 km), make them out to be more obvious. The two craters are located at the southern Mare Nubium.
The 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.
