Visibility Unclassified

Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I went to put the car in the heating. I took the camera and tripod with me and pointed the lens towards Arcturus. I grabbed a dozen squares in the breezy twenty-degree frost and then hurried my fingers to warm up by the coffee mug.

Nice target and I guess to be my tenth comet.

Kävin samoihin aikoihin, no puolisen tuntia aiemmin, kiikaroimassa kohdetta. Täytyy sanoa, että jääkiteiden kyllästämältä kaupunkitaivaalta komeetta oli 7x50-kiikarilla melkoisen haastava kohde.  Näin kyllä hiukan utuisen tähden, mutta mitään kirkkaus- tai komahavaintoja en kyllä kyennyt tekemään.
