Professional tripod, ISO up to 1600, open aperture, exposure time about 5 - 10 sec and very important much luck.

If the aurora is intense, 2 seconds and 400 ISO will be sufficient.  You will have to test it. This way fine structure is not lost. Don‘t work too wide open or you will get colour fringes around stars.

I shot a (very mild) show a couple of weeks ago in Ivalo, Finland.

I was using my 24-90mm SL at 24mm. Although they were not very bright (barely seen with naked eye, got a bit brighter for some moments) I found I could shoot at ISO 1600 for 5 seconds with some light to spare, so I stopped the lens down to f/3.2. Sturdy tripod used. I was pretty pleased with this first attempt, particularly how well the stars came out.
