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 !

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.

      7 sightings over the last week... some better than others, but each observation offering something slightly different. Caught the crescent moon as well, so thrown these in here.
      Have loads of data to enjoy processing over the next few weeks, but here are a few that I've sorted so far (in edition to my two recent posts).
      Will add to this thread as I sort...

      This mornings display was far more subtle than the previous day, but actually made for a nice shot. Very high up and in a lovely fan shape which I’ve not seen before and my NLC sightings are now into double figures.
      Composed at a jaunty angle to anchor the image with the tree and provide some scale, dodge the street lights and capture the brightest segment. They must have extended right up towards the zenith...
      Nikon D3 FX (full frame), Nikkor AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED, tripod mounted, cable release and mirror lock function.
      Processed in Adobe Lightroom.
      Taken from north Lichfield (Staffordshire).
      Single shot. D3 - ISO 200, 0.6 sec, f/2.8, 24mm, 3.33am

      Got a few more (all basically the same to check through) and need to work out the stars/constellation (Cassiopeia), above right at some stage.... off now to do some more NLC hunting!

      Sunday 30th June.
      NLCs started appearing as the skies cleared around 1.45am.
      Grabbed gear and headed off around 2.15am to the same location as last two sessions. Another 90 shots taken!
      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 and (where required), stitched shots together in Photoshop CC2017
      Taken from north Lichfield (Staffordshire).
      Clicking the pictures should open the hi-res images.
      Panoramic 1 - 7 shots. ISO 200, 2.5 sec, f/2.8, 70mm, 2.56am. Note over in the far right the Pleiades.

       
      Panoramic 2 (Detail) - 4 shots. ISO 200, 2.5 sec, f/2.8, 200mm, 3.01am

      'The Saucepan and NLCs' - Single shot - (Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED). ISO 200, 2 sec, f/2.8, 24mm, 3.22am

       
      Started to pack away just as 'Mr Blackbird' started to sing - the dawn chorus broke.... then noticed a beautiful sight over in the East, switched back to the Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II and added the TC-14EII 1.4x
      A 7% Crescent Moon.
      Single shot - ISO 200, 0.8 sec, f/4, 280mm, 3.28am
