|Comments:||The picture was shot yesterday night [6Jan] at temperatures as low as minus 19° Celsius (minus 2.2° Fahrenheit) which is quite unusual for western Germany. In fact it's been the coldest night for more than 20 years and caused a freezing in the Dec. axis of my scope after some 30 minutes.|
