I am wondering if anyone has successfully used their MPP to film/shoot Northern Lights displays.  It's that time of year here and I would like to give this a shot providing I can get my backside out of bed when they are out.

Wow, that would be a nice idea and great video too. Hopefully, our valued Customer can share their experience shooting the Nothern lights displays.

That's something I'm also very interested in...

My approach would include decreasing the shutter to a level where the light is just about visible and then play around with ISO until it's entirely visible. I can imagine, though that depending on how fast the lights are moving this could lead to a decent amount of motion blur when the exposure time is too high...

I know there are general guides for traditional DSLR cameras but not sure how they would work with the camera on the MPP.

While playing around today at night I found out that this could become very tricky. I suggest capturing a lot of images with varying shutter speeds and ISO and then filter out what turned out bad... Take at least 3 pictures in a row just in case the drone changed orientation mid-shot. That might happen a lot... I took 20 pictures today and only 1 was acceptable and this was just a bog standard city shot.
