Very turbulent atmospheric conditions and dense clouds allowed only less sharp photos with a Zeiss refractor 840/63mm f13,3, on Canon ASI ZWO cam.

Only a a short cloud gap of 35 minutes made it possible to get some images and videos.

May it was a lucky action because in whole Bavaria a dense fog layer was positioned over the whole land.
