I had to post this in Space Exploration as well as my moon pics thread.-
Its my first ever Moon video.



Scope/camera details in signature.

I am totally ignorant about this sort of thing, but the detail is amazing. Very impressive.

So am I Sir-I am taking my first tentative steps into the cosmos,with technology doing 99% of the work for me.

Fantastic! I saw your moon pics thread too, good work! The detail is great. What resolution did you record in?

Wow. Usually I just see craters but that row of mountains is fantastic. Seriously.

Does any one know about how big those craters are? They look like the size of a lake but are they bigger or smaller than they look? Dumb question, but i dont read much.

The close ups were using the crop video mode @ 640x480 50fps.
The long shots were initially filmed on full 1080HD,but my Bro scaled them down to 720 for Youtoob.

Its not a dumb question to me just starting out on my Moon observations.
I ask it all the time.
What I use as a scale is this:
The other day I accidentally got a shot of a feature on the Moon called Rupes Recta or "the straight wall"-A dark line on the Moon,made by an ancient moon quake.
I thought it was an anomaly at first.
I found out it is approx 110km(or 70miles) long from internet moon experts.

Now I can use that as a scale to make approximate crater size estimates.

Here are two pics to show you my scale:



Dark line in brackets=approx 70 miles.

That tiny 70 mile line is within this red rectangle,between the craters.



That is what I am using as a scale for now as a beginner.
You can use it to measure crater sizes.
And you will see some are Massive.

Great video you made!

The sound effects you added made me think of the old TV show, Space: 1999

hehehehehe.

Thanks Buddy!

I just got hold of one of these variable projection adapters,so that I can use eyepieces as well for a much further zoom:


The guy in the shop said it probably wouldn't work as its meant for a different type of telescope.
Most internet info said it can't focus through my scope..
;(

For two days I had real problems focusing though the adapter-because I had to shoot through a window as it was damp outside.It was nearly focusing,but not quite.
BUT-when I took it outside today I managed to get good focus on the hills opposite my house,so its all been worthwhile.

I will make a video using the new adapter soon.
I really want to get closer to those awesome moon mountains right near the end of the vid.

And I will be aiming for other planets and stuff as soon as I get clear skies.


One thing I am not too happy about is how sensitive my scope/tripod is.
All it takes is a bit of wind,or even my dog trotting about nearby,and the view wobbles about.

Anyhow,here's an image from March 8th,through my original adapter-Very orange that night,I was wondering if the solar flares had anything to do with it...not sure:



Really tricky to get good focus due to the amount of sunlight bouncing off the surface-This is one day away from a full moon.

Thanks for looking folks!
