Last week on august 5th we were treated to a coronal hole followed by some G1 auroral activity here in New Zealand.

Unfortunately I live a bit too far north to capture the spectacular Auroral images.

However, ever the optimist, I set my canon 6d with a Samyang 14mm lens up in my backyard and captured 300 or so shots (20 seconds at iso 3000) which I then sent through to lightroon timelapse.

I'm quite pleased with the result. Definitely some colour there.

Sorted for you Andy. Great timelapse!

I had to look up what a coronal hole is. What effect does it have on the Aurora

EDIT I've hidden your other post which is now a duplicate, hope that's correct.

You have some well trained clouds down in those parts.   They just sit on the horizon and shuffle about !!!!

Gorgeous timelapse.  Been a while since I saw the LMC.

Thanks Stu,

As far as I know the coronal holes have an effect of solar wind speed and therefore auroral activity.

The the clouds when there is a westerly are very well behaved indeed !

There are a range of large hills/small mountains under those clouds and it seems to keep the clouds at bay. 

A northerly however is a different matter all together 😂

      I’m looking to do Milky Way Astrophotography, and I’m hesitating on whether I purchase the Full Frame camera that is the 5D Mark II or the APS-C EOS 600D.
      I plan on using the Rokinon/Samyang 14mm F/2.8 wide angle lens, although I’m open to suggestions so long as said suggested lens is under 500$.
      The mount I use will be the iOptron SkyGuider Pro with the counter weight supplies in the set.
      If there is an alternative to the cameras listed above that goes for less then 400$, I’m willing to hear it.
       
      Thanks a bundle,

      Ladies and gentleman, 
      Thank you for helping me in advance. 
      As a kid I've always been fascinated with the sky and what was in it. The nights sky is filled with beautiful stars and nebulae and I want to see them for myself and be amazed how insignificant we really are compared to this vast open space. So let me adress some of the key points that I want for a first scope.
      1. Around €1000
      2. Big aperture, I want to see as much as possible and as far as possible while not losing a clear image
      3. I would like to have a push to or go to system
      4. Beginner friendly
      5. Size is not a problem 
      8. I prefer reflectors since it seems they give more aperture for the money but if you know a better scope that sees more with less aperture let me know
      9. I have a Canon 550D and maybe I could use this for a bit of astrophotography. This is last on the list tho and can be scrapped if the first 3 points aren't met
      Of course build quality is very important when making my choice so keep that in mind as well.
      I'm looking forward to you guys advice. 
       Happy stargazing and clear skies!

      Canon 450D Modified for astrophotography, the IR cut filter has been removed for better response on red emission nebula in deep sky objects. Comes with battery, and charger. Shutter count is (atm) 5914, see picture 4. The camera is in great condition, throughout. No lens, just body. Will post special delivery. message me if you have any questions. Price is £150.

      ====================
      Note: My first time producing a proper time-lapse video. Unfortunately the amount of noise and hot pixels were much worser than expected when I reached the video editing stage, and I need to learn how to apply darks against individual frames en masse. I am not personally satisfied with the final quality, but still thought I should share with what I have on here.

      Please feel free to leave a comment, critique, suggestions and guidance on here, thanks!
