I managed to get some good pictures of the aurora with a G2. I think you could have done better with the settings though. Use a wider aperature than F4 so you can drop the iso down from 400 and get a less noisy shot. Nice shot though with the pines.

As Sathi said, you could reduce noise by increasing aperture or increasing exposure time so that you can reduce the ISO setting. For this picture, you might also consider running it through a noise reduction software such as Neat Image or Noise Ninja. A lot of these software have free demo versions that you can try for free.

Anyway, I like the picture a lot. The trees provide some framing for the color.

Linuz, very nice shot. I agree with the others, about aperture and ISO. Your goal is to have the non-glowing parts of the shot black and the glowing parts as bright as possible. Open the aperture as far as it will go. Start bringing the ISO down in steps until you get the effect you want. Long shutter speeds and especially high ISOs mean noise. You want to find the balance.
