Kvadrantidit - 4.1.2020 at 05.00 - 4.1.2020 at 06.00 Ruovesi Observation number 87216

Visibility III / V

The weather forecast promised to be clear in the morning, so despite the wind, I had to go see if the star flights of the quadrantids were visible. The edge of the agglomeration where I had previously photographed was chosen as the observation site. The shooting direction may not have been quite optimal, but they were well visible in the sky. For an hour I was watching, letting the camera take a picture of myself. These seemed to be quite small, every now and then someone bigger hit the horizon. The picture below is made up of six different boxes of starbursts, from there for about an hour. Described from the same point, with the same settings all.

Kovastihan siellä onkin tähdenlentoja näkynyt . Hieno yhteenveto tunnin ajalta. Oliko tuo järvi vielä ihan sula?

Kyllä siinä nimellinen jääpeite on.
