Cheers Mike,

Pentax make many a fine lens. The older 50mm is the best I've seen of it's type. There's more to life than Canon and Nikon eh ?

Nice image but you really should have gone back to bed and not be up until near 4.00 am !

Dave.

Have decided just to keep this one thread for NLC's during summer season 2013.

Anyway here is another NLC display from 30th into 31st May...

This is a 17 pane mosaic of NLC's in this early morning scene from Kelso Golf... & Horse Racing Course, radiation fog shrouds the ground detail between the trees into the distance.

Pentax K5

Pentax 45mm f5.9 lens

Exp 10 secs each pane

iso 400

Processed in PS5 & PS6

      Great view of noctilucent clouds this morning from the beach at Selsey, West Sussex. A very extensive display which elevated in altitude quite considerably over time. Last structures disappeared from view around 04:16 BST.

      This is a timelapse of an NLC display I photographed in Northumberland on the 16th June this year, I was using a 50mm lens on a Sony A7s.

      The noctilucent cloud is in the upper right of the image, hovering over some beautiful pink and purple-tinged lower level clouds just after sunset during last year's autumnal equinox. A single 1/1250s exposure at f/5, 155mm, shot with a Nikon D50. No processing. One of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen!

      Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've been on this forum...
      On June 16 I was lucky enough to capture my first ever display of Noctilucent clouds, and naturally took plenty of pictures. I was lucky to be in a location in Durham with a good view to the North, and conveniently, the cathedral was to the North too!
      This photo was taken late in the display, as most of the NLCs were beginning to fade away. This patch of NLC was one of the last ones visible, and lower, much less interesting clouds were beginning to creep in & block the view. However, for this short period of time, everything aligned together nicely to create an interesting shot.
      Taken with my Canon EOS 1100D, with the stock variable-zoom lens set at 49mm. 40s exposure at ISO 100 on a fixed tripod, processed (various enhancements) with Camera Raw & Photoshop.

      Better luck this morning with NLC very low on NNE horizon over London recorded from bedroom window ;-) 
      How do you estimate the NLC range from its altitude above the horizon knowing the angular width of the photo?
