    Aurora Australis

    My first attempt of the Aurora, also my first glimps.

    Would of been better if I was closer to the coast. Didn’t know the Aurora was going on, as I was shooting the moon.

    Not a bad idea with the sock, it might help the manual focus from drifting about with a tight fitting sock over the lens. I'm not to worried about battery life, I run two batteries in a battery grip which is handy.

      Last night Aurora Australis

      11pm the show didn’t last long, out of all the shots I took, this was the best I got. One prior and after were all I got of some colour.

    I’d love to have a crack at photographing the aurora, but alas as I’m just a pauper my travel options are pretty limited.

      That blasted unicorn was a no show again, but did manage to capture the some airglow. A smidge of Green and red colour across the sky with no structure.

      No images edited, straight from camera apart from sig attached to image.

      The cliffs at base of Gibson steps, makes you feel tiny. With Milkyway creeping over

              The TRUTH is out there,
              the Aliens think its a great joke on us.
              We still believe in Santa, but eat the Easter Bunny

              And the Easter Bunny tastes SO GOOD !!
              That's why he is made of Chocolate.

                Nudes with good tits in the foreground with the sky stuff as the background would be nice.

                Tonight is supposed to be the last night of an event with lots of shooting stars.
                About to have a look but being on the escarpment, we may get some city light pollution.

                        Was the best In two years, at least the clouds gave me a window to see some of it.

                        ​​Normally a good show were covered in clouds and don't see much. But clouds played ball, although not totally clear was great to see the bursts of colour light go through the sky. Strongest aurora in two years to see it with your eye in my neck of the woods. Like they would in Tas and NZ often.

                        Just glad to capture some again. Been awhile I seen a good show apart from airglow.

                        Just a couple images from the night I got 50 odd I'm yet to flick through.
