Partial solar eclipse

20.3.2015 at 13.13 - Kauhava (IV)
Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

Slightly in the aftermath are a couple of shots of Friday's "events." I photographed the early stages of eclipse at my workplace in Alahärmä with a 600mm telescope through a solar filter. In the middle of the eclipse, I drove home to Kauhava (How so speeding ?! =) and waddled the final stages with H-alpha Luntaten. The material should be waded through in more detail later.

Partial solar eclipse

Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

Partial eclipse. I was late twice during this session. At the beginning 5 minutes when I forgot myself over the tuna bread and in the middle of course I stopped at the camera on just as the passenger plane rushed over the sun disk. (It's nothing #! #). Otherwise, the people also prefer Finns.

vdB 142

Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

Inside the IC 1396 A of Cepheus, a dark mist vlB 142 is found. Due to the shape of its tip, its nickname is "Elephant's Tip." The length of the toad is more than that of all African and Indian elephants suffer a total. The length of the fog is about 20 light-years and the distance n, 3,000 light-years.

NGC 2237

20.11.2020 at 02.46 - Kauhava (IV)
Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

The hydrogen rose Rosette flies midnight into the winter southern sky stage. This huge emission nebula can be found in the unicorn constellation. The distance of the fog is about 5,000 light-years. In the middle of it is an open array of hot stars that have blown a bubble into the surrounding hydrogen vapor. The cloud itself is 130 light-years in diameter. It contains a wealth of interesting structures and star-bearing regions.

Faint naked-eye comet PANSTARRS

The spring binocular comet can still arrange a decent show, as long as it rises out of the glow of the sun.

Faint naked-eye comet PANSTARRS

4.4.2013 at 22.31 - Kauhava (IV)
Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

The comet ascends towards Cassiopeia, saying goodbye to Andromeda. For once, we Finnish star enthusiasts are favored by the weather. 400mm f2.8, Nikon D800E 5x120sec big 1600. The UHC-S helped combat light pollution.

Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

PanSTARRS ascends towards Cassiopeia. Here it is passing the dwarf galaxies NGC 185 and NGC 147. The background density of the background is different compared to the mid-March outlook.

Mars

10.4.2014 at 00.48 - Kauhava (IV)
Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

Good transparency and at times calm weather prompted oversized magnifications using Powermate. A set of 2,500 squares was found enough sharp squares.

Transit of mercury

9.5.2016 at 16.04 - Kauhava (IV)
Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

Like a tiny iron pepper over a cosmic orange. Mercury slid slowly in a completely cloudless sky over the sun. Only the initial 45 minutes and the remaining 30 minutes remained unrecorded. The material accumulated in a gig trade to be collected in a rainy-day cart.

3.5. in the evening the observation conditions were almost excellent. The moon 's South Pole environment looked much better than a month ago. The smallest details in the picture are less than 1000 meters.

Sinus Iridum

1.6.2020 at 22.54 - 23.00 - Kauhava (IV)
Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

The bay of rainbows Sinus Iridum sometimes emerges from the terminator as the Jura Mountains bordering it shine in the morning sun. The perimeter shows the door handle against a black night. The golden handle was now a bit half of what it could look like at best. The diameter of the iridium is 260km.

AR2765 I first tried to photograph a comma cluster with mylar film and visible light. The marvelous difficulty of focusing in my time I assumed was due to thick pollen and intense vibration. I switched channels to H-alpha frequencies, and immediately got better views.

Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

On the surface of the sun, a small increase in activity. Friday superprote went just past us, but luckily the Sky Guard is great documents about what happened. EDIT: Figure 2: AR2768 and AR 2769 The "double porridge eye" of Cycle 25 roars with interesting twists on the surface of our home star. Here and there a few steam prototype loops. This is a 2x Barlow scooped detail of that I posted earlier from the full disc view. The image has stretched levels and contrast adjustments to emphasize details.

Mars

The sky, which surprisingly seemed foggy, served quite stable seeingin. So far the best has hit me. Syrtis Majorin to the northeast shows the future landing site of Perseverance, Jezero craters.
