Among the very first few pics taken. It really caught our attention as soon as it was dark enough to see well.

This was the first pic taken with very good features and was the real kickoff because it was so noticeable to the eye as we waited for action. 20mm, Iso 200, about 20-25 sec.

It started right as soon as it was dark enough to see, about 9-9:15 pm, but the bright, full moon was somewhat of an influence.

Moon 8-28-04

Submitted by: Lorie Giebel at Sun Aug 29 20:10:01 2004 UTC

This moon is about 24 hrs. from being full. It will be full at 9:22 pm CDT on 8-29-04. Taken about 10:00 pm with a 100-400mm lens at 400mm with a 2x extender. I stacked 13 images ranging from Iso 100 to Iso 400 and shutter speed of 1/50 to 1/100. I flattened and used unsharp mask to achieve this image. When comparing this image created with individual images taken, this image seems the more detailed. I have read about this method and it seems to work pretty well.

Aurora #1, 8-21-04

Submitted by: Lorie Giebel at Wed Aug 25 11:36:01 2004 UTC

2.2, 2 min. exposure, 800 Iso, 20mm f1.8 lens, Canon 10D. Taken at 1:57 am on 8-21-04 on the shores of Lake Superior in Ontonogan, UP of Michigan. I had observed the aurora starting around 10:00 pm on the 20th, took a few pics and went to bed, as it was not a phenomenal show. I awoke around 2:00 am to check on the aurora and it was still in progress. Please forgive the image quality, as I was half awake. This pic may be a work in progress. Just wanted to get it up for now.
