NGC-7293

4.9.2021 at 23.10 - 00.00 - Uurainen (II)
Erkki Rauhala

Helix mist should be tried when conditions are right. Last week I filmed it several nights. Admittedly, the number of images per night remains quite small, as the fog wandering in the low southern sky is sometimes hidden behind the trees. The imaging tube is almost horizontal.

Earlier in the evening, it seemed like nothing was visible. But then the situation changed.

About two hours of heaven, or the rotation of the earth in a westerly direction.

Jupiter ja Saturnus

7.12.2020 at 16.40 - Uurainen (IV)
Erkki Rauhala

Two giant planets are approaching each other. Now that there would be suitably clear evenings before Christmas, then this would be a great encounter.

Quite surprisingly, repos were visible in the northern sky. Luckily, the camera and tripod were almost ready to go, so I got to the show.

In the low southern sky, the glorious Moon, as well as the fog, obstructed the view of the northern lights, but still a pretty performance.

Zodiacal light

Erkki Rauhala

Movement on the Milky Way. When this time comes on a clear and moonless evening night, you should always try to photograph the zodiac light. The Repos decided to perform at the same time, but it didn’t disturb the situation.
