WOw...it has been so long since I've posted here! During a relaxing long weekend visiting the grand-daughter (and her parents) I was able to get away after all were in bed. I'm really glad that I went out as I was rewarding with a beautiful light show...

Playing with my head lamp to create some contrast....

And after a couple hours of aurora, i simply turned around and grabbed the other side of the sky...

Love the whole set Randitola. Have to say I really like that Milky Way capture though.

I'm with HBG! Love the Milky Way but all three are amazing. :)

I have to agree the entire set is awesome, my favorite is the first image.

Makes me want to get out soon under really dark and/or aurora - filled skies. Lovely image of the Milky way and it's Great Rift. Altair seems so bright I thought for a second I was looking at a planet. I do wish a bit more tree branches could have been included only because a novice skywatcher might get the impression that these are the tops of trees and that the image is presented sideways. Nice series!
