The timing of the transit was about an hour earlier than predicted, so the transit was close to not being included in the light curve. The measured length of the transit was 143 min, which is about 30 min shorter than predicted. The dimming caused by […]
The high-quality all sky camera has now finally been installed in Castle of Clouds (Finnish as Pilvilinna) that is private amateur observatory at the THO site. The camera has a resolution of six megapixels and produces a color image for the Warkauden Kassiopeia and THO websites every few minutes. The camera pole has been turned […]
The clear weather that lasted for a few nights last week made it possible to make observations at the Härkämäki Observatory. With the observation deck of Celestron, a light curves of seven different exoplanets were observed from 7 to 10 December 2020. The SBIG ST-8XME CCD camera with a photometric R-filter was used for the […]
