Aurora timelapse video, shot during the course of two nights at Alaska on March 11 and 12. Feel free to share and let me know what you think of the video in the comments.

I recommend watching the HD version in fullscreen with audio on :)
 
I made this video from over 4,450 individual photos taken in the course of two nights at Chena Hot Springs in Alaska.

This was my first time shooting the northern lights, and I quickly discover that unlike shooting regular nightscapes one set of settings won't work for all night. It depends on the intensity and speed of the aurora. Therefore the settings on the photos range from 1/3 of a second to 8 seconds, and from ISO 4,000 to 10,000. But everything was shot at 14mm and f/2.8; using Nikon D750 and D600 cameras.

Please excuse the sudden flashes of light, there were a lot of tourist nearby trying to get aurora photos with flash, or just afraid of stepping out without a flashlight, I tried to remove most of it but some happened in the middle of a nice aurora sequence so I decided to keep them.

+EarthSky I don't think it's lens flare in this case as it hasn't inverted as it passes the central axis of the lens and only half the moon is reflecting considerable light.

Sorry it took me a couple of days to notice this ... I took care of my little grandson for a day and a half, and then it took me another part of a day to recover!  :-)
