Moon - 18.10.2021 at 20.30 Turku Observation number 101851

Visibility Unclassified

Eeva-Kaisa Ahlamo, Turun Ursa

Laziness, that sinful death of the star enthusiast. Even if it’s bright outside (rare in October), the buttocks can’t get up from the couch except to the balcony. You can still get the tube as you stand, but I can't change the camera adapters to the red dot sight, so I'm looking for objects in a masochistic way directly into the eyepiece without searching. The moon is now at least an easy target. However, refinement is tricky because I didn’t manage to lift the pipe to the balcony in time, even though the weather forecast looked promising. I ruffle in the chair and take test shots until they start to be even somehow ok. Then when I start seriously trying to take pictures, the Moon has flown behind a nearby link mast.

You can always find the one that is forced to photobombata the image. :(
