Capturing the Aurora Borealis with a 4/3.....

Looking for some advice on a new (or used) lens for my camera. I'm planning on spending my spring break dog-sledding and viewing some northern lights in the Northwest Territories, so I wanted to get a lens for my camera to take advantage of the events. I have a fish eye lens, but it's kind of a cheapo- ebay lens, or its not suited for my camera, I don't know. Some larger scale landscape photos have turned out ok with it.

Camera: Olympus E-420
Current lens: -Zuiko 14-42mm
-Zenitar M2,8/16 Fisheye (made in Russia)

I don't know all that much about this camera or the 4/3 system, but I figure I need a lens adapter to fit the popular lenses to it. The current lenses I have fit the camera with no adapter.

Any suggestions are welcome, I was thinking a wide-angle lense might be appropriate. Not looking to spend much more than 200-250, so used seems like a good option.

i found this when i search that camera, idk what the 4/3 system is but from reading the page i guess this would allow you to run a regular olympus mount lens,

i havent seen many people using an olympus camera so it might be harder to find one, but the higher quality lenses are more expensive, especially the wide angle lenses
