Hi Tom.
Nice shot, I was going to get out and at least have a look, maybe point a camera and see what I could get, the weather decided otherwise, wall to wall cloud. :(
Oh well at least somebody got to see it.

Cheers, Graham.

Beautiful shot, Tom !

I couldn't get much away from city lights last night, so instead I shot right into them :p
Within an hour worth of exposure, I could only capture two visible meteors (one's a bit harder to spot among the star trails). Next time I'll have to find a better spot, and stay out much longer.

Zürich, Switzerland.
318 exposures combined.
Canon 6D, Samyang 14mm f/2.8, 10 sec, f/2.8, ISO 640.

Sweet photos! I actually did see a few here in Queens, NY, esp one really bright one. I didn't think it would be possible w/ the street lights so bright here.

I got a couple of burners, I didn't stay up too late, middle of the work week and all.

I went out with my wife but she had to work the next day so she said we couldn't go farther than an hour, so I couldn't get to dark skies. But it was fun to lay out there and watch them.

The view from Central California, August 13. Shot using a 6D with a Rokinon 14mm, 1600 iso, 25 seconds, f/2.8. I used an intervalometer and but only caught these two together in one frame.
