Aurora over Deeside rty1905jhp 
 Aurora Borealis Scotland photo autumn Scottish green rays Deeside taken on the 1st October 2012 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen is the first display I have seen this back quarter and probably the best display now photographed since end of the previous Solar Cycle in 2006. This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens and ISO settings of 3200 which allows for much shorter exposure circa 6 sec average times with hopefully more accurate recordings of these moving events. The light conditions were not perfect as the background light was from the full moon but dispels any myths that Aurora’s cannot be seen under such conditions.
Taken in the garden looking westwards as activity starts behind clouds at 00.18.28hrs UT [01.18.28BST] with an exposure of 6 secs. The Plough or Ursa Major is visible between the clouds.
