Visibility IV / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

Signs of autumn visible - Ursa Major arrives on stage. The moon also flashes on the right side as well as several satellites. The arc and rays of the northern lights that appeared at 02 o'clock raised only a hint of reddish reflection at this observation site.

The camera is a new northern camera coming to the Kauppi tower in a test drive. From the still bright nights so far, it would seem to be quite suitable for northern lights and fireball photography. The sensitivity is in specs 0.0005 Lux and the resolution is 3840 x 2160. Time-lapse video is calculated from the recording with ffmpeg and imagemagick.

Toisikohan joulupukki minulle samanlaisen?! :D

Kohdassa 0.20 pieni tulipallo vasemmalla.

Miksiköhän muuten tähdet näyttävät häntivän jonkin matkaa tullessaan puiden / katonreunan takaa esiin?

Kiitos :)   Kohinansuodatusasetuksissa on nyt ollut aikadimension suodatus melko korkealla. Tarvitsee joskus pimeällä livekuvassa säätää alaspäin niin, että jonkinverran kohinaa tulee esile.
