Ok, so when are you going to upload the raw video? It's obvious you've edited out the Soul Catcher, towers, ufos, and of course the aliens.


Seriously though, nice video...thanks for sharing it with us!
It makes me want to go out and buy a telescope, so I can see all the cool things in the sky for myself..

How do you record video from your telescope?

That crater has a central peak. They're fairly common. They can be found in Tycho, Copernicus, Theopholous and many others.

They're caused when the meteor hits and melts the crust. As the ejecta walls collapse, the lava splashes back to the center just like the water does in this video:

I hope people notice that the perimeter of the moon clearly shows it's curvature with noticeable peeks and valleys, ie. a very rocky uneven altitude differentiation that you will not see on the earth even if the Himalaya mountains are on the horizon.

It puts into perspective just how rough the terrain is on the moon from celestial strikes compared to its size, compared to a living planet like the Earth, and just how much larger the Earth is than the moon, our solar system's closest companions in size, locked together in orbit.

I believe I heard somewhere that we are yet incapable of creating a man-made sphere, (or facsimile of) comparatively as smooth as the surface of our very own Earth, should the physical size be the same. And to think it looks pretty hilly if you live in the Colorado mountains, he ha.

This is not correct. The heart of the Gravity Probe-B satellite are gyroscopes made from pure quartz spheres that have been machined so precisely that, if they were the size of the Earth, the highest imperfection would be less than 1.5 meters tall. They even got in the Guinness Database of World Records.

I would stand corrected. The information I was reciting must be decades old, in fact a lot of things I heard in the 70's kind of stick in my head, I should have done a bit of research before making such a statement.

Sweet video, thanks! Please film crescent or quarter moon, it's the best phase for craters and ridges
