Visibility II / V
26.1 waking up already around four in the morning and after a cup of coffee already on my knees in the field photographing the comet and not more than that when the equipment is taken into account.
I had time to process the pictures inside, and while the stars were still twinkling in the sky, we already walked into the Käpytikka forest, where we spent more than half a day.
The iPhone squealed a couple of times and the opportunity to get on board and Kokkola's Lohtaja was offered.
On the way there was already one handsome colorful cloud, but the car didn't stop. We managed to get there in time and there it was time for the first stars to appear and it would have been even longer for me, but the driver was already heading for Oulu.
On the way back there was still a momentary description of the northern lights there in Siikajoki's Varesäikkä.
I got home at 22:00 and while processing the pictures, the morning rolled on until I fell asleep.
In terms of the description and additional information, we are quite out of the loop, but it does not prevent the shooting, and adjusting the exposure time for HDR files was hard work, although even from the single images of the HDR files, you can pick one that can be adjusted moderately to match what it looked like visually, except for the moon.
As for the pictures of the day in question, it will take a long time to process them.
