Visibility IV / V

Ari Haavisto, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Poor seeing has plagued my Mars filming attempts so far. Now with Mars still low, the weather looked promising in the early night test images, until a surprise cloud cloud emerged directly above the clear sky and remained motionless to cover much of the sky. After wondering for an hour on the cloud board and finding that it wasn't going anywhere, I had to give up the filming again ...

But it looked quite promising until then.

Hyvältä näyttää, itse en kerennyt ottaa ainoatakaan kuvaa ennen pilviä.
