Perseid Meteor Shower 2016

Here is my version of Perseid Meteor Shower take this year.

I scouted this spot a week ago particularly for this event and shoot the Milky Way (flic.kr/p/KXEg92).

 

Unfortunately this weekend the fog there was unexpectedly low than most of other days in this time. Luckily the setting moon was lined up with milky way at the time it went down to the horizon at around 2AM.

 

I took 200+ shots from 2~4 AM in the morning with 2 seconds interval, and found out 6 shots have meteor. Then I stacked the 6 meteor into the milky way image I taken during the moon-set, and make this composite.

 

Meanwhile, i used 200+ shots to make a time-lapse to reflect how the milky way moved, and how meteor passed through the frame:

Happy Monday!
