Link to Sky,I-Link Town Observatory 2


On March 2015, I went to I-Link Town Observatory,Ichikawa.

At that time I could not enjoy there. Because weather was foggy and It was too cold. Because there is half open observatory.

I wrote about it below.

So I went there again before the coldest period of the year.
It was early November.

In this article, I used AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR and AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED.

I arrived there in the evening.
Then the sun was too much shiny, I couldn’t see Mt.Fuji.

After sunset Mt.Fuji appeared.
It looks like Mt.Fuji is embracing buildings. I felt Mt.Fuji was close.
