Landscape image of a planet - 11.9.2020 at 02.55 Ruovesi Observation number 93596

Visibility Unclassified

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

By Thursday-Friday night, we had settled far from the light pollution, near the shore of Haukanhieda in Helvetinjärvi National Park. At this time, they were allowed to be there almost in their own conditions (a couple of neighbors who came later also settled in different corners of the area in the Finnish way)

When I left for the trip, there were no thoughts on filming opportunities - the intention was to come back after the rain on Thursday-Thursday night and the storm on Thursday. By evening, however, it began to calm down and brighten. We decided to change places and stay for another night.

I hoped to see the Milky Way better than the inhabited areas at their best visible hint. The crescent moon brightened the sky to such an extent that the belt was not seen this time. The moon and also the glimpse of Venus through the crevice of the trees tempted me to try the description. A tripod was not included. As a compromise, I tried 4 ... 16 s exposures. The best was this 8s exposure taken by hand against support.

In addition to Venus, Aldebara is visible on the right side of the Moon. Looking at the day view, I noticed that I had been lucky enough to see Venus through that tree.
