I used both 400 & 800 ISO film last time i took photos of the northern lights, also did the same with my small point & shoot digital camera. Never tried 1600 ISO. Great shot.

Yes I agree Gil the 1600 ISO seemed to work better, at least with this exposure.

Wish it hadn't gotten cloudy, I would have stayed out all night experimenting! :)

Wow! This one is nice Katy. I like this one better with the higher ISO. I cannot give you any advise on this. We never see these things here for me to experiment with. I would love to get this good a shot way down here.

Thank you Don, Hartforwxman and Betsy!

Betsy I shot this last evening around 7:30, and shortly thereafter thin clouds moved in and they the aurora were (sadly) diffused.

How I long to see this. Chances are I'd never be awake in the early morning hours if we did have one. Time for me to go back on an Aurora Alert site.

Was able to view it here in the northern part of the lower 48 as well. Of course it appears to be much more spectacular up your way...

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
