1 july 2012: Noctilucent Clouds

Scenic picturesPosted by Koen Miskotte Sun, July 08, 2012 12:14:20

During the evening of July 1, 2012 I saw a small display of Noctilucent Clouds. I took some pictures from the Groevenbeekse Heide (a moor naer my home). The best ones are shown here. I also need to clean my CMOS sensor....

Picture 1: a small NLC display on the evening of july 1, 2012 around 21:06 UT. I used a Canon EOS40D, a Canon EF 15 mm F 2.8 fish eye lens and a TC-80N3 timer controller. Click on the image for a bigger image.

Picture 2: this image was taken around 21:14 UT with a Canon EF 30 mm F 2.0 lens. Click on the image for a bigger image.
