Photographing the Aurora

With a peak in the sunspot cycle (and, consequently, the predicted aurora cycle) coming up in the next two years, some photographers' thoughts turn towards the aurora. The Luminous Landscape has a very informative article by Ben Hattenbach and Henry Throop titled Hunting the Great Alaskan Aurora. They include a wealth of information including the best airport to fly into, the best time of year to go, and the best roads to drive searching for dark skies.

I used to think that once you've seen a few good aurora photos, you've seen them all. But, maybe not. Along with some important technical information, there are also some very good aurora photos.
