On August 7th, a partial lunar eclipse took place in Europe. The moon was already in eclipse as it rised in the east at sunset, with the Rosalia mountains in the foreground. The sky was clear and I could take some photos from my terrace.
Viktor and Jürgen observed noctilucent clouds at the North-Western dawn sky. At the oberservation time, the sun was about 8 degrees below horizon. The noctilucent clouds were shining in a bluish colour.
Christian has a new toy, the Olympus E-M10 system camera. In the Zagersdorf wind park area he produced a nice widefield polaris startrail image. And poor Viktor had to perform as guinea pig for testing the live composite function by producing a horizontal ground-based “star-trail”.
Christian took a 15 minutes exposure of Polaris startrails with with a Christian wayside shrine at the outskirsts of Wulkaprodersdorf.
