Chandrayaan-3 images taken from space by telescope : Chandrayaan-3 images taken from space by telescope Italy's Virtual Telescope Project attempted to take pictures of Chandrayaan-3 in space. A time-lapse image was taken. Chandrayaan-3 looks like a shining point like a star in deep black space.

Chandrayaan-3's rocket was about 43.5 meters high when it lifted off from Earth. The rocket broke apart while taking Chandrayaan-3 into orbit, leaving only Chandrayaan-3 and its propulsion module. Today it orbits the Earth in an elliptical orbit

When it comes near the earth. then its distance is 228 km. which scientists call perigee. when it goes away from the earth. then its distance becomes 51400 km. This is called the apogee. But the Virtual Telescope Project in Menciano, Italy, took some pictures of it. A time-lapse video was made, in which Chandrayaan-3 appears to be speeding out from among the stars.

These quotas and videos were captured by a Celestron C14+Paramount ME+Sbig_ST8-XME robotic unit. These pictures were taken between July 15 and 17. The scientists of this project say that these pictures were taken at that time. At that time either booster or engine of Chandrayaan-3 was in the other direction. Or it was off. Because at the speed it runs, if the engine was running, a trail would be visible behind.

At the time when these pictures were taken, Chandrayaan-3 was moving at a distance of at least more than 41 thousand kilometers in space. Since then its orbit has changed. After launch on 14 July, the first orbital maneuver took place on 15 July. Then its distance was increased from 31,605 to 41,604 km. Then increased perigee.

It was increased from 173 km to 226 km. It is now moving in an orbit of 228 X 51400 km. ISRO chief Dr. S. Somnath has said that the mission is going well as per its schedule. Health of Chandrayaan-3 is safe. All its orbital maneuvers are performed from the ISRO center ISTRAC in Bengaluru.

This time the strength of all four legs of Vikram Lander has been increased. New sensors have been installed. A new solar panel has been installed. Last time the landing site area of Chandrayaan-2 was chosen as 500 meters X 500 meters. ISRO wanted to land the Vikram lander in the middle. Due to which there were some limitations. This time the landing area has been kept as 4 km x 2.5 km. That means Chandrayaan-3's Vikram lander can land in such a large area.
