Thanks john. I still feel giddy about the fact I saw it!

I bet, it's definitely on my bucket list to photograph the northern lights! Funnily enough they were photographed in Cornwall last week on the 17th!!

I'd be proud of that shot too. I've never seen the Northern Lights in person.

It's such a different capture too. With the N.L. being such a tight spot in the sky.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

a photographer freind of mine wanted us to head out last wednesday night as there had been aurora the previous night. I declined due to having work the next day then started spotting loads of aurora photos taken that night from around this way online. Rather annoyed now I didnt head out myself

I wasnt really sure how long it would last but new I wanted to try and light paint the castle in to the shot so I quickly repositioned and got this shot. Ill definately be heading back there again on a clear night as it would be nice to get more of the castle and more of the milky way in the photo.

A couple from Norway. Being so far north it's not the best place to photograph the Milky Way, but we make due with what we got :-)

Love, love, love my new 24mm Sy!!!!

Great shot also. Im really interested in the sigma 24 but was waiting until I confirmed how well it dealt with coma. How are you finding it for star shots in this regard?

Oh how I miss seeing rora! Managed to capture a glimpse from Whatipu, Auckland on the 18th but nothing amazing.

Here's one from Whangarei, poor mans aurora: Airglow.

Sit down. Enjoy the show. (external link) by tyungwirth (external link), on Flickr

It wasn't quite dark out but I couldn't resist taking a few photos. Ultimately I really like this result, especially the color transition from the light blue blue in the bottom right to the dark black in the top left.

Eddie - coma apears to be quite minimal, stars are looking great.

I heard the new sigma 24 had horrible coma. A few photographers I know bought them and are returning them for the 35 instead

Ive since read that too (since posting my question). I'm now leaning towards the samyang/rokinon 24

It's too bad the sigma seems to be a flop, because their 35ART is amazing.

I loved the 35A when I owned it. I had been hoping the 24A was going to be a good choice for stars because I would also have AF when shooting things other than stars but the samyang/rokinon 24 just seems like too good value considering cost and its coma performance etc so think I will pick one up as my next lens purchase and live without AF

IMAGE: http://s24.postimg.org/3n57md0it/chris.jpg

been playing around with my 50mm more at night. I really love the detail you can get with longer focal lengths, so I grabbed this quick silhouette of my buddy Chris while out shooting on Cape Cod the other night. I have some other images, more standard ultra-wide type shots, that I'm excited to share here once I finish processing them.

ISO10k, f2, 10 seconds

Looks like a composite . I've taken images of the MW with 50mm and it did not bring the MW in that close to the horizon . But it's a great job editing .
