Tautenburg Observatory, Germany
The largest Schmidt camera in the world having a primary mirror diameter of 2m and 1,34m Schmidt corrector plate. In this video one can see how the Schmidt mode is changed into Coudé configuration. I also made another short video at the Observatory when they had their Long Night of Stars in October 2012.

Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, La Palma
This is one of the first videos I have never edited. In March 2012 I visited the Observatories and telescopes at La Palma. Including the largest 10,4m optical telescpe Gran Telescopio Canarias. The trip to observatories starts 02:47 in the video.

I'm from Spain but I've never been to La Palma. Observing from there is one of my astronomy dreams.

If you have access to iTunes, the ESOcast is probably one of the best video podcasts from an observatory out there. They put out one video or so a month.
I love the ESOcasts.
