Visit to Nuuksio

On the 9th March 2013, there was another trip to Nuuksio. We did photograph some nightsky timelapse - for the startrails image. Totally 36 images were taken, before my Nikon D200 jammed - due to low temperature.

Other activity this night, includes visual observing, with colleagues 25cm newton. For the solar system, we took look at Saturn. Most of other deep sky targets, were from the Messier catalog. The familiar M81/82 pair showed nicely. M101 was a bit more difficult then, it showed as faint large are smudge. I did not see the sprilar construction of this galaxy.

Returned to home, after two...three hours of observing. Thanks to Tomi for the car ride :-)
