I just saw something in the sky, not saying it was a ufo or anything like that, but know I can hardly see it. any way I tried to video record it but it was the same jerky/fuzzy crap weve all seen before with lots of distortion as I zoomed in! Does any one know of a telescope that has recording ability? ya ya huble and all that, I'm talking about something any of us could buy? So much of this blurry/fuzzy stuff out their that I think with something like this it could be usefull?? any one know of such a thing that a guy could get at like radio shack???

5.0 Mega Pixel LCD Digital Binocular Camera

Check out the above link. I saw this the other day and am thinking about purchase one myself.


It's a high powered binocular, cam and camcorder all in one combo.

I wouldn't recommend a general telescope as the field of view would be limited. If you are filming a moving object it would be hard to follow. The Binoculars mentioned above have an 8x32 magnification and would be better suited as it has a relatively wide field of view. Good find

I just bought a camera/camcorder mount for my 4.5 inch Celestron reflector...



I'm hoping to get the thing hooked up for lunar observation with my GS-12 Panasonic DV camcorder. Once the temps get up above 60 degrees that is
...

It arrived last Saturday.. I was hoping to use it for some lunar eclipse observation but it was cloudy,.. dammit.



Of course if you're gonna use it for sub-orbital unknowns I'd outfit it with a very low power widefield eyepiece... Your best bet for earth-bound unknowns would be just using a camcorder sans the 'scope set to infinite focus and having a forground object for ranging. Digital zoom OFF. Antishake OFF. AND USE A TRIPOD!!! If you can, get familiar with any iris and shutter speed setting if available on your cam.

Techniques will vary WIDELY depending on if you're filming during the day VS night.

My Panasonic GS-12 has USB and firewire output, as well as analog. If you have a laptop with firewire input a setup like this would be great... you can capture continuous video straight to your laptop. Then analyze it later.

While on the subject of telescoping images, I was wondering if there was any further insight on this particular case of a triangle caught on film using a telescope?
