high above siding spring observatory

this video shows incredible and unique birds-eye views of siding spring observatory!  the beginning displays images of obvious damage from the bushfires that swept through in january, and evidence of natural regrowth.  then it really starts to get fun around the 1:05.

the video was filmed and produced by uwe stiens around the open day event at SSO.  he went around the area with a remotely controlled drone and a GoPro camera attached to it.  cool idea and great resulting footage!

Nicely done. The recovery in just nine months is amazing.

Nice steady video, I expect he was using a quadrocopter or similar.
Can you get a GoPro with a standard focal length lens?
