I see Orion Lurking there in the first shot..
Yeah, last night around 23 to 23.30 UTC...
Until Murphy decided to join the play and wiring of external "batterypack" broke. I use sealed lead acid batteries for powering digicam in cold
because NiMHs "freeze" completely in couple minutes.
(and price of them is about 10% of maker's own batterypacks)
Actually there's often dim auroras in northern sky which spoil visibility of DS objects.
But that's just because Finland is as north as Alaska.
BTW, can you recognise one DS-object?
Auroras should still continue, there was M8 flare on 9th and X2 flare on 10th and at least one CME is heading toward us.
I would say that best times to try to see them is around 9pm to 10pm, around midnight and couple hours later.
