Autumn cove

24. November 2020

After a few unsuccessful attempts, I finally got clear skies. And even such great conditions. This image shows the winter sky’s scenery above the cove in Slovak Paradise National Park called Stratenska Pila. Just above the horizon, the intense airglow spreads among the sky. Six strong stars make asterism – the Winter hexagon. Due to great conditions, also a counterglow called gegenschein appeared between two clusters – Pleiades and Hyades. But there are more objects we can observe from the Northern hemisphere now. So You can find an annotated version in a link below.

Equipment: Canon 6D mod, Sigma Art 50mm

EXIF: 20″, f/2.2, ISO 6.400

Location: Stratenska pila, Slovak Paradise National Park
