An old pano, where my emphasis of the night was Aurora. Around midnight some shooting stars appeared, but I was under the impression that I didn't get so many fotographed. Since the display was more intense earlier in the evening, I left the later batches unchecked for years, until I got into them this summer. To my surprise, several shooting stars were fotographed over a period of a few minutes, which made it possible to stitch them.

Pano made from 7 pics (RAW), 50 mm, iso-5000, f/2,8, 13 sec, developed in DPP (3800 K, neutral, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, scaling and sharpening in PTGui pro.


Wonderful mood, Jan!

Reichlich was los am Himmel über Dänemark. Faszinierend das Polarlicht in tiefem Violett. Bei den Sternschnuppen könnte es sich zumindest bei der ganz links um einen Iridium-Flare handeln, hervorgerufen durch die Spiegelung des Sonnenlichtes auf der Antenne eines Satelliten. Charakteristisch sind die größte Helligkeit in der Mitte und gleichmäßige Lichtabnahme zu den Enden hin. Aber das tut der Stimmung keinen Abbruch. Ich hoffe, deine Wünsche sind in Erfüllung gegangen.

A very nice one !
Last time I saw it so in my area with my eyes only was 2003.

@Dieter - als ich so vor 10 Jahren begonnen hatte die Iridium-flares zu beobachten, habe ich sehr gestaunt wie genau auf die Sekunde die auftauchen.

Not really my topic. But I think it is one of the most amazing "star-panos" on this side.

A magic night ... but how could you keep this light spectacle so long from our community, Jan ;-) !?!

Cheers, Hans-Jörg

I am thankful for the comments :-)

Dieter, I am quite sure the left is a shooting star. It has a characteristic flare of a green tail, which often happens during the initial flameout. Shortly after the intense white light appears.

Hans-Jörg, as I write I left this batch unattended, which clearly was a mistake, so I blame it on my stressful everyday life :-)
