There was a faint display of Aurora last night seen here at Tarbatness. The first quarter moon in the sky prevented me for seeing any activity visually but the camera recorded some green rays and a faint red band above the rays. Hopefully the start of more to come now the Sun is beginning a new cycle.

Your image looks great, and thanks for the explanation. I would not have thought of trying to record the aurora if I couldn't see it visually, but I do for deep sky, so it makes sense. I'm glad to have learnt a new thing today. :)
