Re: Lens for aurora on a ship

To be honest, I think that taking aurora photos on a ship would be a non-starter, particularly if you are at sea. Auroras can vary a lot in brightness, but an exposure of several seconds is always required. Further in most aurora photos you will want to have reasonably sharp stars. Getting good shots can be challenging on land, but on a moving platform I just don't think it will work. Does anybody have some aurora shots from a ship, to prove me wrong?
