Total lunar eclipse - 31.1.2018 at 16.25 - 31.1.2018 at 17.05 Kuopio Observation number 69830

Visibility IV / V

I photographed the Lunar Eclipse exceptionally with a imaging helicopter and a medium telephoto lens. The helicopter's batteries had to be flown all the way to the last amps. Even the freezing of the fingers was noticed only after the show, so majestic the performance was this Mist-covered Moon Eclipse.

No nyt. Upea havainto ja kuvat! Kuinka korkealle tuo nousee, pilviä näes riittää... :D

Hienoja kuvia.

Vielä kun sais ekaan kuvaan horisontin suoraan.

Kiitoksia paljon!

Matti Helin: Kopteri nousee niin korkealle, kun ilmaa on propellien alle. Ohjelmisto on rajoittanut korkeuden 500 metriin, mutta lain mukaan 150 metriä on maksimi. Kuvat on otettu noin 60-130 metrin korkeudesta.
