Seeing in the Dark

Hola a todos: os paso un enlace que me han enviado al mail los de Meade 4M community:

Este es el cuerpo del mensaje:

Seeing in the Dark, a film by 4M Community Alliance member Timothy Ferris, will air on Public Broadcasting Stations across the USA on Wednesday, September 19 at 8:00 p.m. (check local listings)
Stargazing is the subject of Seeing in the Dark, a 60-minute, state-of-the art, high-definition (HDTV) documentary written, produced and narrated by award winning filmmaker, journalist and best-selling author Timothy Ferris. The program introduces viewers to the rewards of first person, hands-on astronomy. It is based on Ferris's book, Seeing in the Dark (Simon & Schuster, 2002), named by The New York Times as one of the ten best books of the year.

The program features remarkable high-definition astrophotography and introduces men and women who have seen and captured phenomenal images within and beyond our solar system and galaxy, both professionals and amateurs. They include:

Robert Smith, former star NFL running back turned stargazer, Miami, Florida
Barbara Wilson, who teaches at a public observatory near Houston, Texasli>Steven James OMeara, an artist and astronomy writer who lives in Hawaii
Ron Bissinger, a corporate CEO in Pleasanton, California who hunts for planets of distant stars
Rob Gendler, a radiologist and deep-space astrophotographer in Avon, Connecticut
Michael Koppelman, a musician who imaged light older than Earth from his observatory outside Minneapolis
Debra Fischer, an astrophysicist at Cal Berkeley who works with amateur astronomers
The Bisque Brothers, designers of telescope-control software and hardware in Golden, Colorado
The Seeing in the Dark Web site (, going live on September 5th) will enable viewers to print star charts for their time and location, view video tips on how to get the most out of stargazing, learn more about the people and concepts in the film, and find local star parties where they can look through amateur astronomers' telescopes free of charge. A Seeing in the Dark robotic telescope, located at a high-altitude site in New Mexico, will be available for students to image star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies for themselves.

Seeing in the Dark was made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation and with support from the Public Broadcasting Service. The program DVD will be available for $24.99 at immediately following the broadcast.

La pena es que sólo lo verán los yankees, a no ser que tengamos parabólica, digo yo.
En la página hay dos videos de promoción que se pueden ver on-line.

En el mar del Caribe, dode navegan los más feroces piratas con el bajel e-mule, se puede encontrar ya el susodicho filme (en inglés, claro).


El fichero de 1.5 Gb y calidad excepcional tiene extensión .mkv (matroska:, lo que quiere decir que antes de verlo necesitareis descargaros el correspondiente paquete de filtros,etc de esta web:

CCCP: Combined-Community-Codec-Pack

Una vez instalado el pack, además de poder verlo con el Windows Media Player de toda la vida, se puede convertir a mpg sin problemas para grabarlo en DVD por ejemplo con el TMPGE.

Un saludo y disfrutadlo.

P.D: Aunque si sois buenos ciudadanos preferireis comprarlo por 33.99$ en

Ya la he visto y la verdad es que no me ha dicho absolutamente nada la película.

En un par de ocasiones me ha parecido un fenomenal anuncio publicitario de MEADE y OBSESSION.

Un saludo.
