Half-decent on odd controls, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 8, Finish. Problems on 2 turning (+3min) the wrong direction, then see-sawing back and forth close to 4 (+6-7min), a large detour to 6 (+6-7min, the straight-line route choice is too hard).
First test of newest toy, a Garmin Virb Ultra 30 action-camera.
This mode records one 4k frame every second, together with the in-camera GPS position and data from ANT+ heart-rate, cadence, and speed sensors. No idea on how long the battery lasts in this mode yet.
North of Paloheinä across the border in Vantaa: Kiintorastit Ylästö.
Autumn-season 2017 opening for Itärastit. Choosing where to go up or down the steep hill to hit the control is always hard, here problems at #6, #7, and #13. The edges of the map both around #10 in the south and around #15 in the north are fairly simply drawn and in need of an update. Warm +22 C and humid.
Time to start the autumn orienteering season - itärastit starts this week, and there are three firmaliiga events starting next tuesday.
OK going on #1-#4, then quite challenging legs and controls on #5-#7. Had no good plan for finding #10, just wandering in the right direction, when a clearer plan via the stone lower down the hill would have been better.
Fringes from the University of Helsinki FTIR instrument, while aligning it using a HeNe laser. Imaged with af=600mm lens telescope and QHY5 USB-camera.
