Sari Pietikäinen, Corona Borealis, Rovaniemi

Mars and Seulaset were pretty side by side, and even roared right in front of my balcony, so I had to take a photo of them. Unfortunately, my balcony points directly to the city center, so the amount of light pollution is huge. Well, but in a test sense, I took thirty 1.3-second exposures and stacked them. This was a good exercise for using the program (I didn’t stack anything before), but in itself, over time, I got a similar picture from just one picture. And oh, I had to settle for 1-second exposures, the little ones meant the stars would lose their shape ... I hope I can get to shoot Seula...

Toni Veikkolainen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

The advantage of road works on the corner of the home is still the darkness of the street lights. The encounter between Mars and the Pleiades I had yet to capture the camera on the cell so I decided to try how it works. The thin cloud gauze did not block the view of the objects.

Mars and the Pleiades met in the sky. A couple of nights I watched the situation when it was clear.

Mars ja Plejadit

Jukka Koivisto, Suomenselän Pegasus

After a long dry season (bad weather), shooting with some new equipment. This encounter is the first image born. The 300mm tube was a bit cramped for these but when the zoom was inside the temperature then this is a satisfaction.

Last spring Venus flew past the Pleiades and this spring Mars. Visually, these encounters are nice to watch.

It was nicely visible, even though there was moisture in the air and the lights in the area were disturbing.

At the end of the evening, it brightened up and I quickly went to see the encounter between Mars and the Pleiades. On a short telescope, a picture in memory.

Beautiful encounter.

Mars ja Plejadit

2.3.2021 at 23.40 - Vaasa (III)
Tommi Järvilehto, Vaasan Andromeda

This encounter between Mars and the Pleiades had to be filmed. Next time in 17 years. Photographed on the shore of the center of Vaasa. It wasn't quite a clear sky, but enough. Even the northern lights green in the northern sky when seen with the naked eye. Rays formed by a nearby street lamp on the right side of the star landscape image.

Revontulia katsellessa tuli otettua kuva myös Marsin ja Plejadien kohtaamisesta, jota tuli seurattua myös edellisenä iltana ilman kameraa.

Mars ja Plejadit

1.3.2021 at 19.30 - Kuusamo (IV)
Voitto Pitkänen

I wondered for a moment about the star that appeared under the Pleiades and then concluded that it must have been Mars. And so it was. Then I had to get excited for another hour waiting in the dark which one would have time first; reasonable twilight or clouds? I guess there would be a draw and the wind was still rattling the camera. The end result is the attached sample.
