Faint Aurora by the eastcoast

Me, my son with friend and my father took a 90min drive to the eastcoast, hopefully to see some Aurora Borealis. It was not the strongest display and some clouds didnt want to go away but we had a nice session anyways.

More Noctilucent clouds

My son noticed some nice Noctilcent clouds from his bedroom so we took a ride to the lake of Vallentuna and checked it out.

Merkuriuspassagen / Transit of Mercury

We got some fantastic weather, sun and 25 degree C! I was lucky with clear skies in the beginning of the

transit then the clouds arrived. It was a beautiful sight but how small planet Mercury is compared to our sun!!
The old Canon 350D did the job today and it was difficult getting focus through the viewfinder I can tell you :-)
My parents and daughter joined me in the Observatory in the backyard.

Spring starry sky at Tänndalen

Me and my daughter Maja went out to check out the nightsky at Tänndalen Sweden. We noticed a light low in the north, faint Northern lights. And the Milkyway with Cygnus also low in the north, a beautiful sight. I tried a close up shot of North America nebula and the Butterfly nebula with my 85mm lens and modded 600D, they moved behind treetops like playing hide and seek with me, I did a single shot of 15s.

Photo assignment

Doing photo assignment for the swedish television, this is the second trip. This time I went to a favourite place in Lapland, Rensjön Kiruna, a sami village. This location is very good for Aurora of course but also for good weather. In doesn´t matter what the weather forecast shows because of the micro climate in the area. I also stopped by a good friend Ulf Jonsson in Luleå http://www.juo.se/ and did some shooting. The final work will be timelapses in a upcoming project. 270 GB of footage, hopefully some of it is good enough for broadcasting. Here are some footage around the area, not from any of the
There are so many things that must work to get good footage, of course clear skies, but all the equipment with cables and batteries, dew/frost, sharpness, and this time 2,3m of snow and -20 degree C! I needed to use the snowmobile tracks to get hard ground.

Orion setting

The great nebula of Orion with the Horsehead and Flamenebula around the left star in Orions belt. The view of the constellation Orion at Färnebofjärdens nationalpark was amazing. Of course I could not see the red nebulae but the great starfactory, with newborned stars inbedded in gasclouds, Orionnebula is possible to see without optics as a fuzzy dot in the sky. This is a single exposure of 15s using a 85mm lens
