Starry sky image - 3.9.2016 at 00.00 Kemiönsaari Observation number 56720

Visibility III / V

Milky Way on a night between Friday and Saturday in Kemiönsaari. Surprisingly, light pollution was also visible here at times, especially on the horizon at both ends of the Milky Way, although according to the light pollution map, the area should be the darkest areas in southern Finland. There are starting to be few dark spots on the south coast this way. Because of the lights, the camera became pointed almost straight up.

On the same trip, 8x42 binoculars were tested for the first time, which turned out to be very comfortable, especially considering the price tag of about 100 euros. A 5-year-old tablet must be added to the stock losses, which did not like the condensing moisture, but still provided light to the flats even before their final clotting.

All in all, a trip that made it worthwhile to drive from Espoo, even though, hoping for total darkness, I was a little left in the tooth cavity.

The lens misses seeing a smaller aperture, somehow I remembered the drawing being better.
