Night Trax  aurora photography
The above image "Angel Fire" was selected from amongst 426 photographers all over the world as Nordley's 2005 Photo Of The Year. This is the most prestigious aurora photo contest of its kind. The Grand prize awarded to Mr. Anderson, was an all-expenses paid trip to the Andoya Rocket Range in Norway where sounding rockets are launched into the upper atmosphere. The Norwegians have lead the world in the study of the aurora for over 100 years and it was here that some of the very first aurora images were taken.

     What is a wimpy camera you might ask?

      Well... its anything that might not survive a harsh winter night of say minus 40 degrees or more without mechanical damage or dead batteries.

      In other words: If your camera manual states that operating temperatures are above zero or above freezing well then... you might just have a wimpy camera.
