Perseids - 13.8.2021 at 00.00 - 13.8.2021 at 02.00 Kangasala Observation number 100491

Visibility III / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I was again in Kangasala on the beach of Luksiala watching the best star flight flock of the year.
Conditions favorable, warm (+15) and not disturbed for a month.

Other stargazers from Tampere had arrived and what was more comfortable.
It was nice to listen to the happy screams every time a starburst appeared.
So thank you for the good company.

My own viewing balance got unnecessarily small due to unnecessary rolling, but I still saw a few great star flights. Also, again, bats flew over us.

I tried taking pictures with light equipment - the Olympus Stylus pocket and the Huawei P20 Pro pocket.
The Milky Way captured the images reasonably well (although it wasn't completely dark yet).
I haven't checked the pocket pictures yet, but here are a few cell phone flaps (the first one possibly a star flight).

The third image shows a hint of the North American fog.

Edit: added a 9x60s exposure shot as a fourth image with a paperback (Olympus Stylus 1). Approximately the same area as a cell phone camera. Not much difference to a cell phone picture except the stars look cooler.
And yet the fifth picture on paper with 5x60s of exposures. Jupiter the brightest and to the right of Saturn.

Hyvinhän tuossa ainakin jo linnunrata erottuu tähtikuvioineen noin kevyellä kalustolla kuvattuna.

Ihan kelvollisia linnunratakuvia kännykälläkin tosiaan saa.
Pokkarilla vielä hieman parempia.
