Aurora Borealis Last Night


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I got home from our 6 week camping trip yesterday but was too tired to go out and try my luck.  But about 10:15 I thought I would venture out to the front yard and see if I could see anything.  It was faint, but I aimed the Q3 at it and got this:

So, I was happy enough to drag myself out of the house for a 15  mile drive up the Yakima River Canyon away from city lights.  I was pleasantly surprised and spent 30 minutes looking and trying different things.  Here is one of the Q3 shots I got.  I did not take too many with the Q3 as I really needed something wider so switched to my Nikon where I could get 14mm, but those shots are not for this forum.

I don't mind seeing your 14mm shot of the Aurora taken on the Nikon.....Just for comparison :)

OK.  Here is a link to the Nikon shots taken with the 14-30/4 Z on the Z7ii.  Mysteriously it was set to 15mm instead of 14.  5 sec, f4.5, ISO 2000 and very slight noise reduction in Lightroom 6.  In camera noise reduction was off.
