No Aurora Borealis
After the solar flare hit earth Monday, there was a chance that the aurora could be seen as far south as Pennsylvania on Tues and Wed night.
So after I got off work at 11:30 I found a dark spot on the way home to see if I could see it.
Nope I did not find it but it would have been the perfect night. There was little streaks of clouds in the sky and it was clear.
So I set up my tripod and decided to experiment with night photography. Now for those of you out there who have done this, please don't laugh, lol. This was my very first try at it and now I think I am hooked on a this new aspect of photography for me. I must do some research now to learn more about the settings to get the correct exposure.
If I recall this is a 30 second exposure and I'm amazed how many more stars you can see than with the naked eye. The red is from some city lights about 25 miles away that were reflected up into the night sky. Still the images is a bit dark yet.
So does anyone have any tips they want to give of where I can find more info besides you tube or have you shot night time sky images and how have you done it.
