Yesterday evening, it had also already announced, the first really good NLC were to be seen from Cuxhaven. First for about 30 minutes a very unusual structure was visible in NNE. In this form I had not experienced this the last years. That alone was worth going out again late in the evening. A […]
A shot from yesterday evening. Venus was then nevertheless a little far away from the moon, that did not work to get both on the picture (at least with 500mm focal length). Shot with Nikon D500 and Nikkor 500f/5.6 PF; freehand at ISO 100!

First test with the Nikon D5300 (full spectrum IR). It’s a relief to be able to take the IR shots with the LiveView. The additional quality of the D5300 compared to the D80 does the rest.
