The Nikon D7000 is the first camera I’ve owned with a built in intervalometer. The aurora didn’t seem incredibly active tonight so I decided this would be a good time to try it out, and it worked awesome. Unfortunately the aurora was quite diffuse and not very interesting. Even though the aurora was weak, there’s still a lot going on. There’s a lot of space junk, an airplane, the big dipper, shadows moving from the moon, some clouds . . . just nice stuff.
Anyway, this is what our street looks like on most nights when it’s not cloudy. Now that I know how this works, I’m ready for a good show!
