  1. Astronomy Now published my Aurora image this month(April). Taken in Hvammstangi Iceland 19th Feb this year during G1/KP5 geomagnetic storm. Very lucky to have happened on our first night there. Carl Light by Night Photography
  2. Thanks for all the kind words guys,pleasure to share it with you all.
  3. Hi Olly, to the naked eye it was more of a twinkling effect I would say, but still quite a sight. That and the sight of the Milky Way with the back drop of an inky black sky was something to behold.
  4. Here are a few shots I managed to get in Madras Oregon during all the excitement in Aug! Cheers Carl
  5. Chuffed that Sky at Night magazine published one of my pics for the December issue. Took this on my trip to the States for the eclipse. It’s Pete’s Beach Westport California. Great Sky and glowing bio luminescence in the ocean,amazing couple of hours. Single 25 sec exposure,Canon 6D, Samyang 24 mm/ 1.4 . Will upload a couple of eclipse shots shortly too. Cheers Carl
  6. Hi Charl, great pics, love the detail. What equipment are you using? Cheers Carl
  7. Hi guys, can anybody recommend a solar filter for a Celestron c90 Mak? Off to the States next month for the big one and want to take my C90 Mack as it is compact and relatively light. Cheers in advance
  8. Thank you very much, i waited a long long time for the sky to present itself to me like this. Good things come to those who wait, as they say
  9. I think this might become an annual trip, you can actually see the chalet where we stayed in you second shot! Superb location with just the sea and sky to satisfy the eye.
  10. Nice shots, i cant wait to get back down there. If you get the chance to hire one of the challets on the cliff you wont regret it, especially if you dont have a moon to contend with.
  11. Hi Pat, you are welcome. I used my canon 6D and Samyang 1.4/24mm lens wide open. It is a single 20 sec exposure, ISO 3200. Oh yes and my £30 Velbon tripod! We were staying in a wooden chalet on the cliff edge about 200 feet up. Nothing but 75 miles of English channel and the moon was at 6% and below the horizon. Funny thing is i nearly missed it, was just locking the door before bed and decided to have a peek, and i said something like Holy S*** look at that! So got my kit out and spent the next couple of hours in Milky Way heaven. Cheers Carl The path does look a little like lava!

  13. And as you can probably guess, i did name this one "Stairway to Heaven".
  14. I took this with my Canon 6D in Aug this year at Rame Head Cornwall UK, amazing sky, will never forget it! I have searched for a sky like this for years, and finally ......... Anybody else get any shots of the Milky way this summer?
