Moon Video w/ Canon 5D Mark II DSLR

Video of Moon taken with Canon 5D Mark II mounted to a Celestron C-6A Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope. Lens Diameter 6.0" (152mm) Focal Length 59.1" (1500mm) Focal Ratio f/10.0. Taken December 03 2008 in Monmouth County, NJ.


Unprocessed unedited; I am a photog/amateur astronomer clueless on video processing, and gave it a first try tonight. Staright from CF card to here.


Video size kept to Flickr standards dictates a short video, but it essentially looks the same anyway. Initial jitter due to hitting the record button, then it calms down enough. Atmospherics and a bit of wind show just enough; the real time motion of the moon from left to right is apparent.


Canon states Video = 1920 x 1080 @ 30fps. Best viewed full screen.
