Details:
I was not expecting to see the aurora because the poor sky conditions. Visually it was very hard, nearly impossible, to distinguish the aurora from the murk. However the Canon 40D digital camera did manage to capture some good images. The imaging session lasted from 23:30 EDT on August 3, 2010 to 2:00 EDT on August 4, 2010. The attached image is a composite of two 60" exposures, using ISO 1600 and 10mm f/3.5 lens taken at 12:20 EDT on August 4, 2010 when aurora activity was at a peak for my location.
