Flying over the Moon
Last week I shot my first “live” footage from the Moon using the camcorder and the 85mm Zeiss. The camcorder was connected to a TAL 25mm plossl with a ScopeTronix adaptor. At the moment I am waiting for a new adaptor from Eagle Eye Optics, which will enable me to connect the camcorder, the Nikon Coolpix or any other camera to the Zeiss zoom-eyepiece. This should make life a little easier. I also got a new video-head for my tripod, the Manfrotto 501. This should give me good stability for shooting lunar images with the Zeiss just using the tripod. Anyway, if you’re interested in the first results I got, click on the image below, and the movie (about 3 minutes) will start (9 mb!) Allow a little time for the movie to load.
