Took this real-time HD video of the Sombrero Galaxy the other night under dark pristine skies thru my Mewlon 250 scope at f12 with a Gen 3 intensifier.

When viewing, one gets the sharpest video by using a max HD setting.

The video quality shows about half the brightness and twice the graininess that one sees when looking directly into the intensifier ocular with the eye.

Very nice.

Amazing that you don't have more noise at f/12.
