the biggest CME storm in 45yrs is going off you should easily be able to photograph the northern lights anywhere in the UK if you look north ish around the plough star formation its going off all night as far down as cornwall. remember long exposure +30secs focus set to infinite and auto focus set off the further north you are the more chance of it to the naked eye too.
This doesn't apply to all sellers, but be careful on what you buy from who. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272064192743 I bought some Xmas lights which were advertised as "new". Unfortunately this seller has sold almost all of them, so the people that bought them are at risk from fire or injury if they use them. The last picture is when I opened the box. No screws holding it together, it too easily just fell apart. You can see the wires from the 240v supply are almost touching. http://imglnk.uk/img?i=VvcBvb http://imglnk.uk/img?i=QyxTFy http://imglnk.uk/img?i=uxBMeL http://imglnk.uk/img?i=jZSgIw http://imglnk.uk/img?i=CIBPAO http://imglnk.uk/img?i=WpEyvI http://imglnk.uk/img?i=gjefYV http://imglnk.uk/img?i=gdWFBg The control box has been used before, it is damaged and scratched all over. It doesn't conform to IP44 since water can get in though the button hole at the top.As well as objects and tools 1mm could get into an unprotected wire hole. The control box even has the logo for double insulated electronics, however, there is only 1 protective cover that falls off between peoples hands and the 240v power supply. Someone has wired in a 10A fused plug which is completely wrong. 10Amp isn t going to do anything when used with this product and is unsafe. The 240V cable that has been wired to it has the outer protective cover cut too far back. The soldering to the control board is terrible, there is no strain relief on the power cord what so ever. One of the LED light cables hasn't been put in place properly and is caught on the edge of this box. This is highly dangerous and actually illegal to sell in the UK due to how unsafe it is.
The Aurora Borealis - better known as the Northern Lights - has been visible over parts of the UK. Can you believe this. First of all the Super Eclipse Blood Moon now a chance to see this. In one year.Maybe a month. I am so happy i could sing, dance.Spin around and may just do one or all of these things. Believe there are chances to see it for the next few weeks. Now i know there are many photographers in these rooms on the CAG. Who can take a fine picture. If any of you whether mobile or digi camera sees this Aurora in the skies over the next few weeks could you post a picture. Or maybe as you are keeping a eye on the sky post here when you see it in your area. A early warning so others may look out of windows and see it. Link that explains.With many pictures and other links to explain how and when you might see this marvel of the skies. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-34472301 Off now to take a peek. Checking,Camera, Tripod, Telescope,back pack,supplies,binoculars,stun gun,dog, ok should be enough for a hour or two. I have never seen it have you? Just doing a radar check on cloud etc. Check out your area.Whatever day,when you press i feel it will be current. Up-to date. Pop posty code in and away you go.
