Kemble 1 - 1.11.2015 at 19.03 Oulu Observation number 45076

Visibility III / V

Jaakko Asikainen, Oulun Arktos

A gusty wind caused a throwing of just over 5 arcseconds for guiding. So I frosted Newton back inside and tuned the wide-area lens tube in its place. In the 2 degree image field, a little sway is not felt anywhere!

    • Asterism info

      An asterism is  a group or a pattern of stars, where the stars are apparently close each other, but in reality there are located far each other

      The star of the asterism are not gravitionally connected, such as in the open and globular cluster.  They only seem to be close each, because they are in the same direction looked from the Earth.
