Iam leaving in 2 days 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

What do you mean by high arctic? At this time of year anything above the Arctic Circle will not have any night, just an extended dusk. Not sure how the northrn lights will look like under these conditions, though I wish you luck.

Cant give you any camera advice but the lights are best visible only up to a certain latitude- too far north and they go. I found Fairbanks AK to be about the level but my best views were from quirky Talkeetna AK. For anyone interested they cycle so the best show (more reds etc) should occur 2009 (if memory serves) next. 2003 was the last height. I saw them last year so got a good show but no photos.
