 Aurora Borealis Scotland cloud moving red north winter March 2003 Cassiopeia Deeside Aberdeenshire Scotland taken on the evening of the 30th March 2003 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking to north. This photo was taken at 00.27hrsUT showing strong patches of green arc and a hint of some red ray activity developing over a tree top on a north bearing and was taken at the end of the second evening’s activity after I stopped using slide film around 23.40hrs UT. This photo was taken with a Fuji Finepix S2 digital camera, the first time I used a digital camera for Aurora photography and a major departure from the years of using 35mm slide film. It was set at an ISO of 1600 to match the same sensitivity used for slide film, push developing 400asa Fuji to 1600asa with exposures set around the 20 second mark and lens aperture of f2.8 and the quality results i.e. noise factor was better than a corresponding grain pattern with pushed slide film. This particular photo was exposed for 11 secs with a 19mm focal length.
