IC 1805

Tomi Mustonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

It hurt so funny that the sky was clear for a couple of hours, so I decided to test a new camera to capture the heart fog. The weather and location wasn't quite the best, but I got something recorded for 1 hour 35 minutes.

For the first time testing, adjusting and shooting with autogued equipment. What else would have been my test subject than the mighty M31 Andromeda Galaxy. The galaxy was easily found and once all the adjustments had been made then there was only a moment to rise to the moon. However, I got an hour of the galaxy described and here’s the final image.

Quiet aurora band

13.9.2017 at 22.53 - 23.00 - Paltamo (II)
Tomi Mustonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The northern lights forecast was good and the sky opened in the evening contrary to expectations, so suddenly looking for a scene that was found this time on the shores of Lake Osmankajärvi. Upon arrival, the fires began to shine dimly in the north after a 10-minute wait. This time, too, the event was not allowed to be admired for a long time, but a thick veil of fog covered the sky after about 5 minutes of shooting.

Milky way

September has been very cloudy and the Weather Report promised clouds for the sightings as well, but the sky became brighter for a moment at the Milky Way bonga. #bongaalinnunrata
