IC1396

8.8.2022 at 00.17 - 01.00 - Janakkala, Tervakoski (III)
Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

The intention was to do a two-hour exposure test, but the clouds disagreed with me and I only managed to shoot 43 minutes. Carrying the telescope in, I noticed a green glow in the northern sky, the northern lights could be seen blazing.

Vespera's drive-in the other night. I took the North American fog as my target, in just five minutes the fog was drawn beautifully on the screen, I decided to test with a longer exposure, when there is time, and there is no rush for anything. At the same time, I take a landscape star picture with my phone.

M13

Another shooting night at Vespera. While the sky was still light, I started with the globular cluster of Hercules. At the same time, I installed eVscope to describe a scientific observation for the Seti Institute.

M51

Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

Last night I got in to drive the new Vespera, and I wasn't disappointed, the tube weight is only five kilos and I was able to observe in five minutes. The third target was M51, the observation time was only 18 min before the sky was completely overcast The image has not been processed in any way, copied directly from Vespera's memory. I got this tube specifically for shooting, with eVscope it seems like all the time goes to scientific observations. It seems quite promising for that purpose and can always be taken on trips. This is where the deep sky shooting starts after the summer.

NGC 6960

Last night I got in to drive the new Vespera, and I wasn't disappointed, the weight of the tube is only five kilos and I was able to observe in five minutes. NGC 6960 was selected as the second target The image has not been processed in any way, copied directly from Vespera's memory, the sky was not yet completely dark. I got this tube specifically for shooting, with eVscope it seems like all the time goes to scientific observations. It seems quite promising for that purpose and can always be taken on trips.

I was already going to sleep when I looked out the window while brushing my teeth and wow! now we have to go to the yard. Didn't leave the show cold

A small drizzle, not really even drops, made a nice rainbow in the partly cloudy sky.

I was already going to sleep, until I happened to glance out the window at the magnificent reddish moon rising from the horizon. Put on your outdoor clothes and go to the yard to admire. I took a couple of pictures of the moon with my cell phone, which I wasn't satisfied with, the redness didn't show up. I couldn't bear to start adjusting it any more when I noticed Saturn above the moon, i.e. look to the left and Jupiter was found in the east. I took a picture of Jupiter and noticed the night clouds illuminating the north - northeast sky, well a couple more of them and then I went ...

Moon and Mercury

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.

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.

Exoplanet TOI 4437.01

Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

In April, I spotted a TESS telescope exoplanet from candidate TOI 4437.01 In the light curve, my partial observation of the output I got grabbed. I spotted the subject for four hours. In total, the duration of the event is 8–12 h. There were more observers, so it is hoped that we were able to detect the overrun as a whole. This is still made into a combined light curve and it is hoped that we were able to confirm that this exoplanet is real. According to preliminary data, this planet is the size of Jupiter.

The evening began with a scientific description of the asteroid 2196 Ellicott overflow, was a little too bright yet at 21:43. Next up is the moon. The evening continued with comet C / 2019 L3.
