 Aurora Borealis Scottish colours centre red rays treetops west Aberdeenshire Deeside photographed near Kincardine O'Neil on Royal Deeside west of Aberdeen and started in the early morning 21st November 2003, 25 miles west of Aberdeen. This followed a major storm on the 20th and with hindsight it was the biggest I have since on Deeside to date, 2018. This digital photo was taken at 02.58.25hrsUT for 17secs and these cf140 digital photos were taken at 1600ISO. The 7 photos in this cf140 sequence were taken in the space of 5mins. This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera using a Sigma 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 second mark at 1600ISO which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays. These were digital recordings taken during 2003 when the quality of digital cameras had at last matched 35mm slide film standards and the noise factor was superior to the grain created pushing 400asa slide film to 1600asa.
