I got 63 shots last Wed night. In my part of Aklaska the Lights rarely turn red or pink . . . usually green. However, "they" really put on the show last Wed. They began to run around 1830 HRS and I finally stopped shooting around 0330HRS. We had red, pink, blue, green and various other colors and they were intense at times.
If you get a chance, go to the section on Processing Digital Image and read my posting regarding some of the problems I experienced with the Nikon D1X while shooting the "Lights". Maybe you can answer my question.
