Image Intensifier iPhone video of NGC891 new
      #5684119 - 02/16/13 07:34 PM

Inspired by the other recent videos posted in this forum, I was reminded of this video I took using my iPhone 4S.

It is of the galaxy NGC891. The clip was taken with 28" f/3.66 scope, a micro monocular equipped with a F9800K image intensifier, and an iPhone 4S. The video looks a lot like the real view at the eyepiece, maybe just a touch less contrast.

That looks great. Love that strong dust lane and large size. I assume that your big scope has auto tracking, right? What kind of telescope were you using - a large Dob?

Yep, the scope is a large dob and has a Servocat tracking system. The tracking made taking the video pretty straightforward!

I probably should have jiggled the eyepiece a little bit sometime during the video...gives one a better sense of what it is actually like looking through the scope.
