Will be in Churchill Canada in November and hope to see our first aurora while there.
Any tips on shooting this beautiful phenomena would be appreciated.

Are you going to shoot polar bears? (Cannot think of any other reason to go to Churchill!!)
Aurora shots are like night shooting - long exposures. You will need tripod and remote shutter release.
Thanks, Ann. Yes, we're going to stay at the Tundra Buggy Lodge to see the polar bears. I do realize the Aurora shots would be at night, requiring long exposures. The lodge has open platforms between the cars that I hope to utilize should the opportunity to see the auroras present itself. Will have tripod; will look into remote shutter release.
A shot of the Aurora Borealis from last winter. Shot in North Norway where this is somewhat of an everyday (night) thing. All C&C welcomed!
That is pretty much jaw dropping!
