Just a faint display tonight – the eye could only see a faint glow – the camera picked up some detail and structure.
Type 1 by eye, Type 2 by camera – I checked using an astronomy programme – the Sun was within the 6-16 degree “window” below the horizon to illuminate NLCs.
Type 2 – diffuse bands and Type 3a – short straight waves – blending into the reddish twilight.
Canon 5D mark 2 with 85mm f1.8 lens at ISO200 and f2.2, 4 second exposure.
Hoping that stopping down 1 or 2 f-stops and exposing long enough to keep the histogram roughly centred will help. Still waiting for that spectacular display however! Maybe some day!
