Literally video astronomy with a camcorder

Recommended Posts

I picked up a cheap camcorder a while ago, and it doesn't half have a good optical zoom (50 optical 90x digital), so I wondered how well it would fair for a bit of astronomy?

Nice one Chris, that is some zoom! I can’t quite see the three trapezium stars on my little phone screen, but that is quite some feat! It will be interesting to see how it copes on the moon and planets. 👍

I've done the Moon with it! I'll post up a little video of that too. It was good fun zooming in and out :)
