Iam leaving in the morning for the High Arctic and hope to see some light shows from the
Aurora Borealis. I will be using a Nikon D-70. Any help on Camera settings and how to shoot will be most appreciated. I have the STandard Zoom that comes with the Nikon D-70 an d also a 75 - 300 Zoom. Which lens will work best for the Lights.

Thank You
Paul

This is a tough question due to the extreme variability of the aurora. You will most probably use bulb exposure and wide aperture. These are usually wide angle shots, and exposure times can range from a fraction of a second to over a minute, depending on how bright the lights are, and what kind of effect you want.

Good luck and happy shooting.
