This was taken with a Sony DSC F-707 digital camera.
Took this just holding the Sony digicam over the eyepiece of my 10 inch  dob.
I checked the chart and at the time this was taken, the dark spot corresponds to Syrtis M.

There are a lot of albums on-line, including Northern Lights and The Sky.
Also I put the northern lights to music in a 3 minute slite presentation.  It
works best on a fast computer with lots of Ram...
