ISS - Moonn ylikulku - 4.8.2022 at 16.20 Ulvila Observation number 108061

Visibility I / V

Vesa Puistovaara, Porin Karhunvartijat

The observation of the ISS's flyby of the Moon went as expected: bright daylight, partly cloudy skies as predicted and the time for the flyby of the space station were all clear.

With the help of ISS Transit Finder , I knew how to anticipate and prepare for the occasion better. The rather narrow field of view due to the focal length of the tube and the characteristics of the camera added their own interest to the 'success' of the observation. In the picture, the duration of the overrun in real time was approx. 0.2 sec...

The appearance of the object is not first-class, mostly pixelated, but I think I managed quite well considering the conditions and considerations - I'll still try again ????

(in the 2nd picture, more information about the excess)

Rohkeaa yrittää noin kapealla näkökentällä mutta lopputulos hyvä.
