Moon and Mercury

2.5.2022 at 22.40 - 23.20 - Janakkala, Tervakoski (III)
Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

The ice keeps its own life when it hits the pier, it’s time for the ice to leave. A collared heron screams nearby. Bongaan with the naked eye between the clouds of Mercury. The crescent moon is slowly falling to the horizon. I also shoot with a telescope, although it feels desperate from the pier, I still get Mercury captured inaccurately. Closeness to nature is palpable.

I thought about a suitable site before the scientific observation of the Seti Institute. Appropriately, M13 Hercules happened to be in the field of view.

Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

Surprisingly well, even in the full moon, subjects in the deep sky can be photographed, here Lyra's ring fog with a 15-minute exposure. Even a white dwarf stands out in the center of the ring fog.

M64

9.4.2022 at 00.35 - 00.45 - Janakkala, Tervakoski (III)
Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

The clouds moved at a fast pace in the sky, sometimes cracking the starry sky, as if teasing, I waited if there was a small shooting interval, there would be no interval longer than ten minutes. During that time, I had time to recover the photons from the M64 black-eye galaxy.

M3

2.4.2022 at 23.10 - 23.20 - Janakkala, Tervakoski (III)
Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

The dream debt weighed on the exoplanet the night before as a result of the observation, but the dark moonless sky pulled a longer steep again. Today we just enjoyed the starry sky with random destinations. This is M3

The dream debt weighed on the exoplanet the night before as a result of the observation, but the dark moonless sky pulled a longer steep again. Today we just enjoyed the starry sky with random destinations. Here's the constellation of Orion landing on the horizon with an iPhone camera using Nocturne.

The dream debt weighed on the exoplanet the night before as a result of the observation, but the dark moonless sky pulled a longer steep again. Today we just enjoyed the starry sky with random destinations. Here's a needle galaxy.

Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

The supernova found in the NGC 3367 galaxy has, I think, faded a bit. I last photographed this supernova 21.3 two days after being found. This, of course, is not a scientific measurement but an assessment of the eye.

This comet has faded since I last observed, however, stands out.
