Visibility IV / V
Mobile phone photography in a tropical night (+20 degrees). The Moon and Mars formed a nice triangle with the Pleiades. PKV.'s heritage pipe, 170mm maksutov made by Sal, was digitalized by our tour guide. Seppo presented his device at the Lahti star days in 1976. Otherwise, the observation night was spent remembering legends. I matched the recording of the moon to its first vertical crossing. Parrot marks for everyone who remembers that semicircle, at right angles to the meridian. The astronomy enthusiast's book has a star map with overlays, and that too explained. At the end of the 1960s, that book could still be bought on the bookstore shelf, new.
