Visibility IV / V
I tried observation at Kevola Observatory at first, but since the sky was almost completely covered in clouds, I set out to look for a bigger opening in the west. Two other observers stayed at the observatory to try their luck - even a small opening would have guaranteed success. However, it seeped in Turku, so I had to continue to Raisio and beyond. At Laitila, there was an opening in the sky for about 10 minutes. I got a few pictures on the 300mm telescope (around 6.06am) and then tried to get a better picture with the 80x600mm telescope. I didn’t have a stand with a suitable telescope with me, so I threw the backpack on the roof of the car and tried to get a picture of it on top of the support. Focusing was very challenging due to the dimness of the Moon, but I got a couple of images of some sort (about 6.14) and then when I finally got a better focus, the Moon was already covered in the clouds again. I then continued my search for a new cloud hole, but the Moon once again appeared partially behind the clouds. But it didn't quite go to waste!

Tiedätkö Marko,minä olin nukahtanut ja heräsin juuri kello 06.15 ja katsoin parvekkeelta Laitilan keskustassa taivaalle ja siellähän se punainen kuu möllötti, samanlaisena kuin Sinä olit kuvannut..Onneksi olkoon me!!
Jaha, Laitilassa on ollut "ruuhkaa" kuvauksissa ;) Onneksi sait saaliin!
