Last Saturday I spent some time outside when the auroras and sky was beautiful. My little camera doesn't do justice. But it still looks okay. Before I deployed in early January I started researching for a good camera. But then I wound up with the flu for two weeks and didn't want to buy just anything. Oh well. The auroras are an everyday occurrence. My time lapsed exposure is 60 seconds whereas "real" cameras are usually set at 15 seconds. But mine will work fine once there is light. The sun is at -21 degrees and rising. We should see some light when it is above -12 degrees.
