Cool. Which camera do you use? Seems from the video that you were imaging from a dark (cold?) site. Have you tried Video astro in Singapore?

Thanks geyes30. yes, It was dark site more than singapore. The picture was taken in the dawn.
I am trying in Singapore recenlty. I did not observe earnestly yet in Singapore.
But in my opinion, Singapore's sky will be better than Seoul.

- Video Equipment
cctv1 : wide (BBP-50 + CCTV lens)
cctv2 : finder A (SCB-4000 + CCTV lens)
cctv3 : finder B (SCB-2000 + Nikon 50mm f1.8)
cctv4 : telescope (LCB-5300 + f=2500mm F10 10inch sct. 0.5x reducer)
AV selecter : change view of camera 2,3,4
PMP1: wide view (cowon A3)

For reference, i add two more video.


1. Test Video in Singapore

camera : Nexstar 90GT + ASI224MC (not cctv)




2. H-alpha Video in Seoul

I used H-alpha filter to observe nebula in Seoul and hand afocal skill with eyepiece.
Seoul has too serious sky which contain light pollution and fine dust in the air
