It has been my belief that the footage was being filmed by a technique, which involves the use of UV/IR filters and/or cameras with high speed aperture settings to push the defraction limit of his scope. (IMHO)
Uh- i have an XL1. it's a pretty good camera and the lense comes off. way better than some handycam. i could possibly get an adapter for it to use Canon SLR lenses- maybe i could rig something up. i'm here in Texas pretty close to the hill country- anyway- if somebody could give me an idea about how it works i'll shoot it myself - screw money- i'm comfortable in my poverty - as far as helicopters chasing me- you know- whatever

Okay a couple things here...
That is a VERY interesting statement.... Here is a video created by a member of Pegasus... Jack Arneson... Subject The Star Arcturus... Scope 8" Schmidt/Cassegrain
This is one of the most amazing videos I have seen... it looks like trailing plasma...
