  CCD Video Camera: Astronomy: CCD Video Camera - Moon On TV-PUTTING THE MOON ON TV
Posted on Monday, November 29 @ 02:51:58 CST by astronomy
  CCD Video Camera


Going digital with astrophotography can be as simple as holding a camcorder up to a telescope eyepiece.

Aim the telescope at the Moon, insert a low-power eyepiece, then hand-hold the camcorder above the eyepiece or, better yet, place the camcorder on a separate tripod so that it looks directly into the eyepiece. Focus the camcorder's built-in lens to infinity and zoom it in to its telephoto position to see highly magnified views of small areas of the Moon. You can also use a camcorder in this way to capture images of the planets.
