Low Grade Aurora bnm5753jhp 
 Northern Lights arc Scottish October 2016 faint rays low grade display Deeside Aberdeenshire taken on the morning of 28th October [after midnight BST], 2016 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen, indicated by the magnetometer readings on AuroraWatch and was the second of four exposures when additonal rays were observed. One of the first nights without a cloud problem to the North and what I suspected were faint rays proved correct when the photographs were processed. This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 aperture, ISO setting of 6400 for 13 seconds at 23.24hrsUT. The increased ISO sensitivity of modern DSLR’s allows for shorter exposures circa 12 sec average times giving more accurate recordings of these moving events.
