I hope so too but it would have to be a very BIG CME.

I'm sure they will be much brighter soon, read somewhere the aurora were visible in the Isle of Man (a small island between Great Britian & Northern Ireland) last week!

Thank you Nicholas and Wilma!

I overlooked that option Nicholas! Thank you for reminding me, hopefully I will have an opportunity to focus that way soon!

The sunset drew me in - can't imagine what fun it must be to be in a green glow globe like this! Thanks for sharing the experience, Katy.

Nice job on exposure, and it also looks like you turned off IS as I don't see any motion blur. For focusing, I always just find the brightest star in the sky with my eyes, point the camera at it, then in live-view move the box to the right star, zoom in to ten times and manually focus with that. However, I'm not sure if this works on the Canon T3. If your camera does have live view, but if my rather poor explanation doesn't make sense, then I'd gladly make a video of how I set up a shot like this. I could make a video of editing RAW files in Adobe Lightroom 4 as well, the program I use for all my pictures. I never shoot jpeg pictures actually, only RAW.

Great one katy! :) Perfect for the circonstances! Only your focus doesn't look perfect, HOMEWER, it make the stars look round and brighter, it give a style and not bad at all! :)I love the photo composition too, the big dipper behinds your trees and the other lower and father, well done!! :))
