Flat Earth Experiment (yes, It looks round)

Is the Earth flat? Here is a simple experiment which can be easily replicated, using a telescope and a digital camera held to the eye piece. Lake Zurich, Switzerland, view from the down of Horgen to Zurich, Casio Lake Side, 2016.

If anyone replicates this experiment in another location, please send my a link, so we can compare results, it would be interesting to find to what accuracy the Earth radius can be measured with a simple telescope. If you argue that the earth is flat without presenting a replication of this experiment, your comment will be deleted.
