Photographing the Moon was Re: Northern Lights

1500mm F5, ISO 200. Spot metering gave me 1/250th sec but with light cloud this dropped to 1/30th sec as in this image.

Also it does show that to fill the frame you need about 1500mm focal length.

Also the atmosphere movement smears the sharpness of the image so do take several images and you could then consider stacking the good ones

There has been quite a bit of post processing to sharpen up the image.
