Pegasus drone and in general use normal cameras but surprisingly have the same effect of high magnification telescope.

I know using several monitors improves display pixels count which is reasonable, but somehow the similar technique works for drones.

  • \$\begingroup\$ "Pegasus drone" is an overloaded term. At the minimum, it could refer to an inexpensive $80 toy, a site security drone platform, or to a several million dollar unmanned combat air vehicle. Please provide to the "Pegasus drone" you are referring to. \$\endgroup\$

I'm not familiar with the drone in question, but it sounds like a (somewhat) common practice in astronomy: aperture synthesis. The basic idea is that having multiple cameras spread out can effectively work like a bigger single camera. Sort of.

You can find a paper from 2004 that discusses doing just this at https://graphics.stanford.edu/~wilburn/wilburn_thesis.pdf
