Went out for 3 hours Saturday night/Sunday morning to see what the meteor situation was like. While I saw 17 meteors, not a single one passed through my camera's field of view. Fortunately for me, the crew of the International Space Station felt sorry for me and did a fly through my field of view - That is the streak of white coming in from the left side of the photo. This particular photo is a stack of 123 photos. All were 10s @ f/3.5, 18mm. ISO 6400 Adjusted in LR4
If you have a chance, tonight and tomorrow night is the peak of the Perseids meteor shower. Predictions put the rate of 50 - 60 meteors/hour.....guess we'll see! :) I for one will be grabbing my camera and heading out again tonight....weather pending.

This took a bit of work! Worth the effort I'd say. Do I recognize the church from out behind Mt. Mckay?
