Another beautiful aurora tonight as the lights danced across Great Slave Lake.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

cgatto, is that a 30 sec exposure? I love how many stars you got showing up in your shot!

Thanks! It's a 25 second exposure, f/2.8, ISO 1600. It helps that the moon wasn't out and it was so dark that night too.
