bigger telescope (motorized, so he can tracks), better and professional equipment (ccd camera etc...)

but yeah, this is basically his world... I didn't choose to go fully pro about it, ahhahaha..too much money =/, and I'm more about visual observation anyways... and videos in this case... hahah...

WOW! This is stunning.

Hey, guys! Thanks for the response!

Answers:

Cheap phone as much powerful as the most famous one, if not more (indeed mine was the MOST POWERFUL PHONE OF 2014). And still about $250 instead of $1000 i-phone (which most people think it's the only one that does 4K videos, LoL). look it up on google: MEIZU MX4 (Meizu just released 2 more, MX5 and PRO5)

I had a tracker! But it wasn't working good (it was an equatorial platform actually, the one where you put your telescope on) because the moon, or planet, was still a bit drifting...so I could just took this (with professional (bust still cheap, too, ahahahah) color ccd camera, which I sold away with the eq platform...):



I'm thinking to give another shot at another eq platform, hoping it will work properly this time. So i can track still the moon and take more cool videos with perfect zoom too.

About weird things, YEAH...and I even posted it months ago in this forum, too:



Wtf? Looks missile-like

Did you happen to film the eclipse? I'd love to see it if you did!

ha! i explained more than once that we don't have to look at the white thing, it's a distant hill =), the weird thing was a black baloons shaped structure, a sort of giant blackberry, but the video is crappy, observing it in visual i was kinda TERRIFIED.

4K has nothing to do with it. Well maybe a little bit. It's more about the zoom. How far can you zoom before the image goes blurry. 4k will just enhance those qualities for bigger screens. I have the Nikon p900 85X optical zoom. I know once I go over the 85x mark the image starts to pixel-ate. I have a 4k video camera on my phone but has no optical zoom. The only issue with 4k video is they are big files, like 200MB per minute and you tube does not support H.265 yet so you cant win. compression wise H.265 would probably turn that 200 mb file into 125 MB

my cellphone allows me to zoom 4x in 4k...but in the last video i did it directly with final cut, not with cellphone.

First video was 900mb h.265, i converted it into PRORES 422 HQ and it turned out 20gb. LoL.

does anyone have an idea what I got here
its on 50 seconds, a plane comes true the pic but has no trails, except when leaving the moons circumference of the light stream coming from the moon. I havnt seen it like this before... its almost like it kicks up moon dust

And do you guys want to put any serious thought into this, or is this just a silly amusement for yourselves? Feel like asking this before I go ahead with "this was normal stuff, with the contrails being obsured by the atmospheric haze" explanation...

GOSH, you must be fun at parties, bro...we're just kidding, of course it's FROM THE PLANE, and it just COINCIDE with that edge of the moon...

Im sure its probably normal, but isn't there atmospheric haze outside of the moons visual circumference?
