Mars ja Plejadit - 4.3.2021 at 22.20 Oulu Observation number 96728

Visibility III / V

Sari Pietikäinen, Corona Borealis, Rovaniemi

Mars and Seulaset were pretty side by side, and even roared right in front of my balcony, so I had to take a photo of them. Unfortunately, my balcony points directly to the city center, so the amount of light pollution is huge. Well, but in a test sense, I took thirty 1.3-second exposures and stacked them. This was a good exercise for using the program (I didn’t stack anything before), but in itself, over time, I got a similar picture from just one picture. And oh, I had to settle for 1-second exposures, the little ones meant the stars would lose their shape ... I hope I can get to shoot Seulas more this dark this spring. It would be nice to see if "fog" can be conjured up with these my tricks.
