I am leaving in 2 days for the High Arctic and hope to see some light shows from the
Aurora Borealis. Never took picture of it before. Will you share some suggestions
for D-70 settings and best suggestions. Also which lens would be best, the standard supplied wit6h the D-70 or a 75-300 zoom.

Thank You
Paul

This is the wrong time of year for the Aurora in the Arctic. Just too much daylight as you will see.

gotta agree with Tivo, but the more important part of what you will do if you do see some is to use a tripod and a long exposure time to capture enough light. Plan for at least one second plusThe lense size should not matter as much I would imagine.
