Best cameras for Low Light/Northern Lights Photography

I know this is a broad question, but say you’re an enthusiast and you’d just sold all your camera equipment (as I have), in order to have a reset in your photography hobby, which system would you buy from scratch for photographing the Northern Lights?

I’ve considered the following...

Nikon Df

Nikon D750

Sony A7iii

Sony A7Sii

Canon EOS R/RP (doubtful as the lenses cost a lot here in the UK)

Nikon Z6

Lenses would be along the lines of wide, but not ultra wide F1.4-2.8 of good quality, but of course I want to combine this with a sensor that can really extract the colour out of the Aurora, without too much noise.

Many thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated. I don’t mind buying used or new, but intend to end up with one body and two lenses.
