Moon Jupiter occultation videos by telescope 15 July 2012 in Romania

On the lunar occultation of Jupiter, in Baia Mare, Romania, I've been lucky, because soon after Jupiter disappeared on the farside, the clouds covered the whole sky.

The clips below are different. The first one, the Moon is filmed farther, and Jupiter, accompanied by its satellites, are at greater angle by the Moon, compared with the second video where is closer to the occultation, and I've waited for the planet with its satellites to hide behind Moon. Near the time of the occultation, in the second video, images have became darker because of clouds covering almost everything, but for a short time, because the event was filmed successfully, and my mission is accomplished.

Exposures of videos that I shot, was at 'auto' mode (when the satellites 'enters' behind the Moon), and 'manual' (when the planet Jupiter 'enters' behind the Moon).
  As I said in the previous article that I posted, with Nikon D80 photos, I put on Youtube the footages, and next I will post another article with processed images from the videos.
 The last planetary occultation occurred on December 1, 2008, when the Moon occulted Venus, and the next one, between Moon and Saturn, will take place only in 2024.
