Please post long exposure & astrophotography here

Are you into long exposure photography & astrophotography ? If so, let's share your images here.

I'd like to begin with a couple of images of Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) captured in Iceland. In fact, I am currently posting a long trip report per link below:

BHammy,

Great shots!

BTW, did you catch the Neowise Comet?

Been jonesing to use my new 8" RASA on Neowise, but will probably have to pass and wait for the next 'great' comet and get other deep sky in the mean time.

Opera House at night. 8 min exposure to 'remove' the boat/ferry traffic. Merged with 15 sec exposure to reduce the noise created in 8 mins. 5D Mk4, 16-35/4 @ f/6.3, ISO3200, 8min exposure with several ND filters.

From the vault...

I took some night shots at LAX in 1963 with my new camera (a Petriflex, don't ask.) Here's one of a prop airliner landing. The exposure was for around 20 seconds. I've tried to figure out the source of the very small dashed lines, and the best I can determine is that it's actually the prop blades intercepting the wingtip lights.

That shot was the sole reason go to go Moscow. I did do/see a few other things, but was only there for 2 nights....also got to fly business in two of the newest jets of the time: 787 over and A350 on return.
