Visibility IV / V
8/21/2016: Update to the report
This year's asses had to be photographed both in Lahti and on the Nastolank side. The actual sightseeing trip took me to Nastola on a ridge of gravel mound, which offered quite wide views to the west and north, but before leaving I also tuned the old 5D to photograph the urban landscape of Lahti.
There were enough challenges in the observation session, thanks to the fogging lenses and the brightening night clouds in the north.
During the night, about 150 asses were recorded in the photographs, of which less than twenty double cases due to the overlapping image fields. In addition, the a7S video captured just over 100 assholes in 40 minutes. The flock seems to be more active than last year, especially for dim flights.

Original report text:
This time the Perseid yacht took him to a high gravel mound in Nastola. Exploring the surrounding mounds was worthwhile as as the night progressed the view on the northern horizon became quite convincing; the night cloud season is by no means over yet.
More detailed scratching and additional pictures will come later as long as you can gutter the image mass through.
The first to hit the mosaic was a 50-mill composition of the constellation region of Perseus, Cassiopeia, and Andromeda. In 49 minutes (01.48 - 02.37), 34 asses were hit in the field.
Night clouds for more traditional single exposures.
