Thirty star enthusiasts Deep Sky gathered at Artjärjven Tähtikallio for a gathering on September 22-24, 2017 and the weather favored us. I myself was enchanted by the Milky Way so that even with large fine telescopes, the view of the sky was sidelined this time. The Milky Way just sparkled so gorgeous. I watched for so many hours that my neck was numb and only then did I wake up to think that there was more to watch here.
In the first picture, the wasted light from the observatory turned both white buildings red, it looked festive to me and that’s why I chose just this picture. Between the observatories were telescopes and, on a camera tripod, photographers whose instruments were illuminated by wasted light from computer screens. In this way, the enthusiasts' own telescopes and camera stands as well as the observatory buildings protecting the fine large telescopes, all facing the starry sky, could be seen side by side. In this picture, I think the local waste light served to record a devout atmosphere. That’s why I really liked this first picture myself.
The other two pictures tell of the view I saw in the middle sky and in that view I immersed myself for hours with great devotion! It was a great weekend! #bongaalinnunrata
