Perseidit - 12.8.2016 at 01.18 - 12.8.2016 at 02.55 Askola Observation number 55736

Visibility III / V

Tommi Ropponen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Visually it was a nice gig and the asses were seen quite nicely. At the same time as I was leaning on the back of the chair, sipping coffee, the camera tapped the pictures.

The power of the tracking stand immediately ran out at the top (my own mocha and I only noticed the departure in tejde), so there is a small throw in the directions of the Perseids between the different images. However, I did not begin to target these in more detail. 32 images showed movement, so they have been blended with a photar. I made two versions: the first is on a darker background and the latter is on a lighter, more real background tone.

It would have become great material if it had been properly dark. On the other hand, there was no need to freeze like in winter in general, so in that sense, this observation tour was nice.

Hienot kuvat. Tummempi miellyttää enemmän. Täällä Vaasan suunnalla ei ole ollut mitään mahiksia kuvaamiseen. Ensi yöllekin sadetta luvassa... :(

Upea on lopputulos ja muutenkin!
