NGC 4438 - 31.3.2021 at 22.00 - 1.4.2021 at 02.00 Ulvila Observation number 97294

Visibility III / V

Jarkko Suominen, Porin Karhunvartijat

I got a modified Canon Eos 700D from a friend and appropriately then came a clear weather the very next week.

I had to photograph the Markarian chain for a long time (with observatory equipment while this project is in progress). Therefore, this became the object of first light for the wicked.

There were street lights right next door at the scene, and even cloud ferries passed over during the shooting. Eventually the Moon rose into the sky and I decided to continue describing the object next time more (which I hope will be as soon as possible).

Hyvä kuva! Onko putki 80 vai 102 mm ? Miten pitkät valotukset?

Kiitokset. Putkena on 80mm versio. Yksittäiset valotukset ovat 3min. Tässä on nyt luvattu kirkasta pääsiäiseksi, niin pitänee valotella vielä lisääkin.

Hienosti onnistunut kuva, Jarkko!
