Aurora event March 9, 2011 over South central Alaska.

Aperture Priority, high ISO noise reduction on, long exposure NR on, EV -.033, Gitzo tripod, modified Cullmann ballhead, cable release, spare battery, hot coffee, chemical hand warmers, patience.

I have since acquired a 24mm ƒ/2 and a 28mm ƒ/2 for a wide angle view of the sky during these events.

Preset focus to infinity and be ready to swivel the ballhead as needed.

Find the darkest sky you can and be prepared to spend several nights out waiting.
