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

      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

      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.

      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

      Worked from home Friday afternoon and decided at the last minute to bring my Manfrotto tripod back home with me and then recharge the camera battery - just had a feeling.... good job as well, as my first noctilucent cloud observation of the 2019 season happened later on(!) - plus on the Solstice, can’t get better than that. Got 250 shots to play with today (whilst the wife was away on a girls Spa day), of which these are the best...

      Packed up and headed home. Saw from my north facing home-office window an interesting feature or two, so swapped to the NIKKOR AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, to try and get some extra details and get around the streetlights!

      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!
