Video: Half Moon

I was able to test a Sony HandyCam HDR-CX130 Camcorder. I was able to get a video of the half moon.

Galileo Galilei’s telescope had about 20x - 30x optical magnification. The HandyCam’s 30x optical zoom should give us an idea of what Galiao saw when he looked at the moon with his telescope.
