At first I tried to photograph the northern lights from the backyard, there was a bright belt all over the sky in the west-east direction but there were bad lens reflections from the street lights and the moon. I decided to go a little far on a dark road from light pollution. There I then shot a bit of the dimmest lights for a couple of hours, the camera lens went into the frost and the cold started to creep into the joints, the beak towards the home warm.

The northern lights forecast promised to come to southern Finland. Although there was a sky in the evening between the front door. I watched Indiana Jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull from the hell, after that, though, and they were visible from the crack of the clouds up in the south sun. I pushed the outdoor campfires on and off, it was a bright show ++ in the city lights and the moonlight was well visible, I took pictures with my mobile phone.

Several halo forms

23.3.2021 at 20.33 - Kajaani (II)
Kari Kauppinen

While visiting the backyard, I noticed a halo around the moon, I took a picture of it. I think the halon was caused by humidity, a slight fog when there were temperatures outside of about +4. The halo is caused by an ice crystal in the upper cloud, Tero Sipinen's correction. The controller image has a delicate horizon ring as well.

Kari Kauppinen

Yeah, now I got to try the first picture this fall, the picture a little porridge. This is an old assembly where the stand is now the weakest link when not following but poking Meade LDX 75, not car fiber. A lot went into the trash last season when the follow-up stumbled. Now share something else in between, came to visit the forest for the second time. With the first rabbit I got now, the second time, yes, I came past a shot of a rabbit and and I didn't really see the hens, yes that's it. It felt nice to start the night filming then yes it started to fog from the rest of the night. Ye...

There have been no proper shooting games here, if there is such a terrible frost. I put this, however, is not exposed enough. Someone calls this As a Christmas tree, I don't know where the lie came from? Pictured above the LED street lamp and sharply delimited again when the pollution light comes through.

M42

Kari Kauppinen

For a long time the starry sky was visible. I got to test the reducer and it didn't have the cell distance in it, it should be 55mm but does Canon and Nikon have a different distance from attaching the lens to the cell. Another is that new LED street lights and a pillar just below Orion have been installed here, although light pollution has pushed through. The image is cropped sharply.
