Starscape image - 1.4.2022 at 22.41 Lempäälä Observation number 105933

Visibility III / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

The last dark nights of spring are enjoyed, so I finally decided to navigate to the place advertised on the Taivaanvahti observation map in Säijää, Lempäälä.
The excuse was also to photograph the zodiac light which I have not yet succeeded in.
And I still didn’t succeed even though the place was quite good.
The views from southeast to west were good. There was indeed one dim light on the pier which was fortunately protected from below.

The atmosphere on the spot was great as the ice banged and the swans shouted.

At the same time, I came up with the idea that the 600D can take a series of 10-second lights without any extra adjustments.
As an example, one of a series apparently with satellite brightening (nothing was shown in the previous or next image.
The camera clock was wrong for 50 minutes but the time of the observation should match its participants.
