You should take always any sighting footage with a certain level of skepticism, that is healthy, but the generalized dismissive attitude of the "scientific community" at large regarding this topic is wrong and unscientific.
These very common objects in "our" sky need to be the subject of a very complete research in an open and serious way for our best Universities.
First segment was taken with the spotter camera where this object of variable brightness is seen, the second part is from the Meade telescope were details of this luminous object are clear, amazing footage!.
Using a modified security camera LG LCB5100 (internal cut-off IR filter removed), and computer motorized zoom lens 16-160mm. A 950nm IR filter is in front of this camera CCD.
This LG camera is being used as "finderscope/spotter" for a second 1/4" CCD camera, no filter. with 1000mm focal length Meade 114mm reflector scope, centering an object of interest in the LG cam FOV will make that object visible on the Meade FOV that have a lot more magnification, this way is easier to get video closeups of some very rare objects.
Both cameras are on top of a PTZ base remotely controlled. Watch an explanation of that setup here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEMZcp...
I added some speed control to the PTZ base using an Arduino board, a solid state switch and a variable resistor.
As I have said it before: there is nothing especial about my location, or any location in particular, I believe that it will be the same in ANY other place, this channel was started with that hypothesis in mind, sightings like this one are confirming that hypothesis. It is up to you to see it with your own eyes and/or your camera.
All footage is time stamped in real time, PC synchronized using Dimension 4, so you can assume that the time shown is VERY accurate.
