Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Thin clouds moving in, and I dropped the iso from 1600 to 800. Both contributed to 'not so good' images, (along with other factors I'm sure!) but there'll be another time!

I am open to advice, I would really like to get quality shots of aurora. There was a lot of graininess in this shot, and very little brightness.

Nice pictures! As for photographing the aurora, I'm no expert either, as I'm sure my aurora photos show very well. It does seem that a low ISO reduces graininess though. My most recent shots were taken at ISO 100. You would probably have to keep the shutter open for longer, or maybe mess with the aperture to compensate for a lower ISO though.

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).
