Default Night shots and Auroras

Ok, big bump!

It's been quite a while since this has been in the light (pun?) and with all the new members I thought perhaps there might be some new night shots hanging around…? I took a few new ones this last weekend which I'll add to the end of this thread.


Original post

I'm fascinated by the night sky and night-time photography. I thought I'd post a few of my favorite night shots and auroras from the past few months. I'd love see some other night shots posted here.

Whatever doesn't kill me, is almost certainly going to hurt like hell!

Breathtaking photos Deneb!![] Care to share any of your secrets?

Night time photos are something I enjoy viewing but I've not taken enough time to try and hone my skills. Perhaps your thread will inspire me. Here is my first contribution.


This second one is a bit of a mystery to some of us as to why the coals display as purple in the picture. When the photo was taken that purple was not visible. There are about 5 more of these that ended up like that. Strange but still a pleasure to view, at least for me it is.


As the year progresses I will try to add to this thread.

Fantastic shots deneb. Looking at your CT name can I assume that you're an astronomy buff like myself?
Here's a few shots of mine.

Big Dipper and Aurora

Love the shots guys!!! I really like the glowing tent shot SteveOz, I haven't had the opportunity to do that yet.

I just had to respond to the purple halo, Terra, I get the same thing all the time. Does any one know why? For example:

Deneb: Awesome shots. I have yet to see the Northern Lights.
Terra and Shadee:
Have you two been hanging out together??
I don't know how to take photos from others' posts (somebody want to tell me?) so can't display the 2 photos I'm talking about. But they are eerily similar.

LOL! Yes, Q, you are very observant as they are eerily the same.[] I know another CT member who could present more of those similar shots.
Shadee, Cwall, HikerBoy (he didn't bring his camera since he'd been numerous times before) and I went on a trip to Lk. Ann last summer.

haha Q - good eye

Yes, I beleive those two shots are taken from the same place, at the one time we camped together.
My bad, I wasn't paying attention, rather than looking for decent night shots to contribute [:I]

Okay, I'll bite. You got my attention.
How did you take the pictures of the auroras? As in what length of exposure?

I've only seen the northern lights once and they were not bright enough for a simple point and shoot camera to handle.

But here's a few night shots from the last good lightning storm we had several years ago.

1. Left click on photo. 2. Right click on the photo, left click on 'Save picture as'. Save picture to your computer and upload as usual.
There's probably a better way, but this works for me
