I was motivated to get out of bed and check out the night sky since Siobhan had brought her camera with my old Tokina lens on it. I love the Tokina lens. It is great for landscape and nighttime photography. While the lens is a cropped sensor lens I put it on my new full frame camera and took off to photograph the night sky. After taking pictures looking south of the Milky Way rising over the Rockwall. I turned my attention north and although I could not make out the Aurora Borealis distinctively, I could that it was brighter to the north. Setting the camera on long exposure brought out the reds and green of the aurora. I did drag Siobhan out of the tent to view the aurora but neither of us could make out the features that appeared on the camera. Below is a sampling of the photos I took. I think I spent about an hour outside.
