Imaging the Moon
With an Astrovid
2000 video system
Whilst many a good
photograph has been taken of the Moon using 35mm cameras and film,
the inconvenience of waiting to find out if you have managed to
focus correctly, and have actually got a shot can be quite frustrating,
and even expensive if you try commercial B & W developing.
With experience of using video cameras on microscopes, I started
to look around at an inexpensive way to image the Moon and other
bodies with a video camera. When I came across the Astrovid 2000
with its remote control settings box I decided to take the plunge.
This is the Astrovid
all packed in its case complete with the Sony GVD Video Walkman
