Venuksen peitto - 19.6.2020 at 11.18 - 19.6.2020 at 11.22 Helsinki Observation number 91308

Visibility III / V

Dennis Lehtonen, Ursa (Helsinki)

For a long time, I wanted to see the occult of the planet, and today I was able to see one. At first, it was exciting to find objects, after all, Venus and the moon are currently thin sickles (dim) and, after all, time close to the sun, so it is relatively difficult to search manually. To my big surprise, I managed to find the objects through the viewfinder in a few seconds, but when I was removing the telescope protection, I pushed the tripod and it took me at least half an hour to find the objects again. So I thought it was too good to be true. I had a very positive feeling from this day and happy with the pictures I got. I would love to see the occultations of Saturn and Jupiter next.

Vielä aamulla kuvittelin itsekin tuo dokumentoivani. Mitenkään en kuitenkaan onnistunut kuuta taivaalta löytämään. Hyvä, että edes jollakulla on tärpännyt!  :)
