In early 2012 I spent nine weeks based in Canada's Yukon Territory on the biggest astronomy and photography adventure I've ever tackled. The primary reason for going all the way up to the Yukon was of course to photograph the northern lights. But the conjunction between Venus and Jupiter in February/March provided a nice sideshow.
This sequence was taken with an entry level Canon 1100D (Rebel T3) proving that you don't need expensive cameras to take great night sky images.
but then very bright and active aurora kicked off even before the end of twilight. From my point of view, this night made the whole Yukon adventure worthwhile!
Unfortunately, the aurora never really came to the party on either night, but you can at least see the quiet green glow
