Congratulations on both sides at noon. Ounasvaara's snow cannon dust was also included in the pictures taken by the water, but there was no such screen available this time.

A small star jumping video for the M57. (In the second video, pictures without patterns.) In the era of GoTo telescopes, wanhaa decent star jumping is rarely practiced a little unnecessarily. That’s why I tried what that would look like in video format. I added the fixed points and patterns of my own route. The tire mist was the first item I found on my own first tube at the age of 12 by star jumping. It was behind the work and the pain when there was no idea what the route was supposed to look like through the pipe, and there was no real idea of the scale, but yes it was finally found then. A...

The surprising thinning of the cloud curtain in the middle of a rainy morning, 22r stood out dimly but when the color of 22ys was also momentarily visible, it was a sure observation from the halos.

22 degree perimeter to hear and I do not know I just imagine, but is also the inner perimeter? I'll leave it to the Savior to decide if. Photo taken at 11:32 p.m. Edit. Another image added. This was taken a little earlier than that first put picture. 23.20

980 Anacostia

Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

On Monday night, I photographed the Asteroid 980 Anacostia overpass to the Seti Institute, would look like positive observations. This finding led to more detailed research at the Seti Institute as a researcher by Joe Asencio. In a month, I will probably get more accurate data on the overrun.

Rare halos

Petri Martikainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

A nice haloshow in the light of the moon struck strangely after a long relentless season. I put the camera to capture the stack as soon as I got home from things. Zykki and 120 ° saur also shone brightly in the sky for a while, but the latter in particular faded away really quickly. Fortunately, it had barely fit in the camera's field of view. After that, I went to another camera to take pictures of the whole sky, but the best moment had already passed. Even the northern lights seemed to stick to the full sky. The main image is a gif animation from 9:32 pm to 10:02 pm, images of unprocesse...

Lokakuu on ollut varsin surkea havaintokelien osalta. Kuun ihan ensimmäisinä päivinä aloitettu projekti tuli maaliin viime yönä, kun Itä-Suomeenkiin saatiin parin tunnin kirkas pätkä. Kuvasin tämän kohteen 17,2 -tuntisena projektina . Sumu on kapeakaistassa HOO -paletissa, ja tähän on löyty RGB -tähdet päälle. Todella himmeä ja haastava kohde. Tässä meni aikansa että löysi edes sinne päin toimivan määrän ja maskauksen kohinanpoistolle. Herkästi näissä himmeissä siloittelee liikaa ja tekee lopputuloksesta liian muovisen.

Iridium 29

19.10.2021 at 21.21 - Siilinjärvi (III)

I bongas on a very short-lived (about a second, about roughly) yet very bright satellite reflection repo shooting trip. Based on the Heavensat study, the most likely candidate to cause reflection is Iridium 29 ( #24944).
