Greetings,

I thought I would share a couple meteor images from yesterday morning.  In a few hours I counted 15 meteors that were likely Perseids, though I suspect I forgot to count several.  I was treated by the sound of a barred owl for much of the night.

 

Meteor with Mars.

Camera: Canon Rebel T4i

Lens: 50mm f/1.2

Exposure: 5sec at ISO 1600 and f/1.4

 

After the clouds cleared I set up my telescope mount to track with the lens pointed toward the radiant.  Here is a composite of the 7 frames which contained meteors.

Camera: Canon Rebel T4i

Lens: 50mm f/1.2

Exposure: 7x15sec at ISO 800 and f/1.4

Cropped and rotated mainly to avoid a large part of the frame which contained no meteors.

 

Clear skies,
Eric
