I've been on the lookout for NLC's since the beginning of this season, but no luck, until last night. As I was getting ready for bed, I glanced out the window and FINALLY, some beautiful noctilucent clouds! Grabbed my DSLR and a tripod and ran outside. Camera: Sony SLT A77 Lens: Tamron SP 70-200 F/2.8 Di USD Tripod: Benro A4570T with Benro B1 ballhead Settings: manual mode, RAW, ISO 500, f/4.0, 0.5 sec, 120mm Post: Some basic minor tweaks in PSE15 (levels, contrast, unsharp mask and slight colour correction)
Very quick process before heading to work. Saw the start of the clouds last night and headed off with the gear to get a shot. Much smaller and dimmer than the last show the previous week. Nikon D3 and Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, tripod mounted, cable release and mirror lock function. Lightly processed in Adobe Lightroom. Taken from north Lichfield (Staffordshire). Single shot. ISO 200, 2.5 sec, f/2.8, 75mm, 11.33pm Damian
