Recently, after hearing that there would be better than normal northern lights, I headed out to my chosen destination and set up for the show. Sadly, it turns out the show started after I gave up and went home; however, I at least tried to capture some night sky shots, something I haven’t done much of. The results are a good starting point to help me learn how to do better in the future and how to improve my post production. One lesson is to not pick a very windy night as it leads to camera shake on the tripod. Next time I will not extend the tripod all the way open, keeping more rigid and close to the ground.
