It was maybe a year ago that John contacted me through my blog, to let me know about his relationship to José Escamilla, specifically, that he was never paid for footage José was using in his movie Interstellar. A movie which I had paid for and that on this website José had announced that I would be refunded if it turned out that John's footage was fake.

John and I corresponded for a few months, then...nothing....

The last clip on his F.A.S.T. feed is dated March 26, 2008.

What John has uncovered it too important to be ignored.

Any need to resurrect this whole sordid, messy affair? Run an ATS search if no-one knows what this is about, although anyone with the remotest interest in UFOlogy cannot have missed this. Let it lie, for the love of God.

I've merely lifted from the thread for ease of reading....




Amateur astronomer John Lenard Walson claims to have devised an "apparatus" composed of a common CCD camcorder and a commercial grade telescope that is capable of zooming and focusing in on deep space objects (which appear to the naked eye as regular stars) in such a way, that their shape and structure becomes clearly visible.

Using an apparatus that involved a telescope, video camera (with nightshot) and a laptop he was able to record some rather large, strange craft in orbit around the Earth.

You can see some of his footage here:

Ive had a look but to be honest im not so convinved. The actual modification is very simple to create the camera, it can be done with a decent web cam.

What im curious about is how he got the ligt detail to allow those extreme closeups of the moon on an amateur telescope. Ive never seen an amateur scope which could get in that close with that much detail and I cant find any information on this modfication he claims to have done.

Don't forget that once he's got the moon (or whichever object) in his scope he still has zoom capabilities through the camera lens. I have a simple Meade telescope and with the right lens you can get a pretty detailed view of the lunar surface.

So a long story short is that no mod was done, im curious though as to how he did get the detail moon shots?

Id love to be able to see the moon in that detail

Ive been searching "googling" this for over a week now looking for the combination for the highest detail moon shots and im yet to see any amateru achieve that kind of really close in detail shots. Im not up on the subject, but maybe you could point me somehwere which shows this kind of dertail and what they are using to get it?

Most images show craters, sub craters, some fault lines, all well and good but those shots were deep detail images of the surface, that as far as I know is impsosible with an amateur telescope, even some of the big ones.

Id love a rig which could though


The issue as far as I am reading isnt maginifcation its light, scopes simply cant gather enough light to get that kind of detail.

I have two eyepieces the MA25mm (28x) and MH9mm (78x). The MH9mm gives me a fantastic view of the moon, not unlike those videos that John shot.

I think that those videos are deceiving simply because he's shooting at the edges of the viewable lunar surface....where the highest contrast is available so you get some nice depth.

The worst time to look at the moon is when it's full...there are no shadows...no definition...it will just look flat.

So why dont you set up up to film the moon for 24 hours and tell us if you see any alien spacecraft leaving the moon bases?

From what I can tell (by reading those other threads) is that John's video's were never de-bunked. Or did I miss something?

Was it ever proven that those "ships" were something terrestrial?? And if so, what are they?

But then back to my original question...what happened to John Lenard Walson?

...sorry, don't have the equipment to do that... Just a basic telescope with two lenses.

But what I find far more fascinating than John's videos of the moon are those "ships"...what are they?

If anyone is still interested in his out of focus "paper clips", he upgrades his youtube site once in a while. Search Gridkeeper on youtube.

Im suspicious of anyone who designs a modification capable of seeing that kind of detail and doesnt publish it.

If I ever found a way to modify any kind of scope to see things that we werent supposed to see, id distribute the design to every UFO buff on planet Earth so that everyone could build one. Once they were being used world wide and everyone was looking, it would be a pretty undeniable fact wouldnt it?

I just dont see the logic in making awesome footage and then keeping it all hush hush secret how you did it, unless of course you are just doing something dodgy for the money.

The reason he doesn't is because people that sell x-ray vision glasses to a blind man don't go over to well!

Im sure a million UFO people would love a scope like that. The holy grail of UFO spotting.

Hell I wouldnt even tell anyone I had it until I posted the plans and designs world wide so everyone had one, just incase the MIBs came looking for me. At least if thousands have one they would be kind of screwed

Good point! I also remember something about getting a "patent" for his device before he let everybody know how he had built it...I've been through the Trade Mark process and if it's anything like that, it could take a couple of years.

@malignant_tumor: out of focus paperclips?? If I remember correctly some of those things were shape shifting on screen, I've never seen a paperclip do that.

Honestly, I still don't see that anyone has de-bunked what John shot...that he has now disappeared I find equally puzzling...
