Then since Saturday I am a bit sleep deprived learning deep sky imaging but I did manage to roll out of bed and take these around 11am this morning. It was very hot and bad seeing.

Superb, especially the animation. No darkness here for a few weeks but I guess there might be NLCs....

Beautiful images, Alexandra.

I kicked myself for missing the view that night. The sky was clear...absolutely cloud free, but I didn’t hang around long enough to see these develop. I kept checking 30-60 minutes after sunset, but I should have been more patient like you were. Maybe there will be another chance later this week if the clear skies return.

May I ask, what camera settings did you use for the NLCs?

Thanks guys :)

Stuart, they were quite bright, ISO200 and 0.62 sec. You need to check between 23:00 and 0:00, and between 2:00-4:00, this is when I have seen them.

Hi Alexandra,

Good captures (and animation). I noticed these as well on Friday and it was indeed spectacular. For a short time these were even visible (very bright) almosts straight up. (Maybe 20 minutes, then only at lower degrees) Had no camera within reach. Pitty

Regards,

Paul
