A rather poor example of the Northern Lights - possibly a limitation of the camera and light.

I've never had the chance to take a picture of them myself. However I think that the longer you make the exposure the better it would turn out. I know on my digital I can keep the shutter open 4 seconds. That might help?

Good effort. I've just bought my first digital (EOS 10D) so I'm looking forward to trying to get this kind of shot. With slide film I usually tried 10, 20 and 30 second exposures with both ISO 100 and 400 film (f/5.6 or larger) - the 100 was generally better to bring out the rich colours. There is a website that can e-mail aurora alerts to you - can't remember the address but try a search on "UK aurora alert"
