M45 - 29.1.2016 at 01.10 Kauhava Observation number 48654

Visibility III / V

Oskari Syynimaa, Lakeuden Ursa

The sky became clear for the night, so I didn’t test the pedestal tracking. The moon brightened the sky considerably, but even with a total exposure of just over 15 minutes, the reflection fog of the Pleiades was also slightly visible. :)

      Open cluster is an irregular group of tens or hundreds of stars. It can be visible as separate stars or a bit fuzzy spot with small instrument.

Se on harmi, ettei Kuussa ole katkaisijaa, josta valon saisi pois kuvausten ajaksi... ;-) Mutta vaaleasta taivaasta huolimatta sumukin alkaa näkyä melko selvästi.

Kiitos vaan. Kuu tosiaan häiritsi, mutta pidemmällä kokonaisvalotuksella olisi varmasti saanut parempaa jälkeä tässäkin. :) Nyt piti tyytyä vain 31:een osavalotukseen (30s), kun alkupään kuvat menivät seurantanopeuden säätämisessä ja homma päättyi siihen kun talo tuli eteen.
