Re: Northern Lights

Tripod
Set camera to manual focus
Use LiveView to focus on the most distant light you can see
Set to S for shutter speed and set 30 seconds
Set ISO to 800

Take a few and review
If too bright then drop the ISO to 400
If too dark then up the exposure to 60 seconds

Take mug of tea/coffee ...stand back and enjoy the show
