This video is created using sequence of photos taken on April 12, 2016 when I witnessed KP index of 5.5. It was a G1 Magnetic Storm on that day, thanks to Sun, Mother Earth and Nature for such a breath-taking dance in Sky. It was like some painter is painting abstract colours, Sky was canvas and Nature was painter.


It was taken in Þingvellir anglicised as Thingvellir (or, mistakenly, Pingvellir), founded in 1930. This location is very important as we can see Glacier mountain in background, a Parliament building in front with view of lake and also the Eurasian and American fault line going. This was amazing show.


When I created the orginal Video with 6000 X 4000 pixel wide, my laptop gave up, waited for long time to get right tool to scale the size from 20GB video (best quality) to mere 2MB size.


I hope you like it, feel free to share if you find worth

      I am currently looking for an UWA lens for astro photography and landscape. Ideally:
      it should not cost a fortune (< 1k) deliver high optical quality all the way to the edges with low coma and CA be as compact as possible I know these requirements are somewhat contradictive, but still, I'm trying to find the best compromize for me. 
      Currently, I have narrowed it down to the following candidates:
      Samyang 14mm F2.8 manual version: huge, not designed for Sony FE, no filter thread and copy-to-copy variation seems to be a big problem Samyang FE 14mm F2.8 AF version: no filter thread, some say it's better than the manual version, others say it's worse, don't really need AF Laowa 15mm F2 Zero D: coma correction is only average Irix 15mm F2.4 Blackstone: huge, not designed for Sony FE Tokina Firin 20mm F2: a bit narrow with 'only' 20mm Any recommendations? Which lenses do you use for astro/landscapes?
