On a sidenote: which picture profile and color gamut is recommended for low light filming? For instance Aurora Borealis and Milky Way+

Any tips for a profile that requires minimal grading for daytime shooting would also be appreciated. I'm a complete beginner at video and feel kind of overwhelmed by all the options.

I'm using my a7SII for meteors, or rather trying to - so far weather/storms have stopped me, but I hope to have another go around the Geminids peak in a week or so (see thread on the astrophotograpy forum for details).

I currently have these settings:

res/fr: 4K 30p
system: NTSC
Exposure: 1/30
ISO: 51200
gamma: sLog2(7)

Will probably try upping the ISO a bit more.

PS. What lens are you using? For best results in low light you will need a fast/super-fast lens! I've got a Sigma Art 28/1.4 for mine.
