March 2017, there is nothing like a good corona aurora. After you have observed the aurora for awhile you begin to recognize when this will happen. Recognizing and shooting that perfect shot of it can be two different things. If you have shot this before you will understand what I am about to describe, if not believe me, it is almost comical to watch. I say that but I am always one of the ones shooting it when it happens. If you have ever tried to shoot with your camera pointing straight up, you have an idea of what it is like. Now, imagine trying to go from shooting a perfectly set up landscape shot to having a VERY few seconds move straight up above your head, in the freezing cold night, gloved hands and a viewfinder you have to scrunch down to your knees to see out of and take the image. I have had the camera fall into my face as I loosened the wrong knob on the tripod head. Your body heat will frost the viewfinder because you are working so hard and fast to get the shot. I've had the camera wack me in the eye because I misjudged the distance the camera. But you don't give up, you keep trying. Sometimes you win, sometimes you don't. Tonight....I WON!!!
