Dave Checking out the Perseid Meteor Shower at 10,000 feet

    Newer Older

    My friend David Besnette and I were up in RMNP Rocky Mountain National Park last night on trail ridge road during the Perseid Meteor Shower doing some time lapse of the stars and meteors.

    It was an amazing night under the stars at 10,000 feet, it was cold but I got to see some of the biggest meteor trails of my life. There are many people like us up there doing the same thing. It was like watching fireworks on the 4th of July with the, "Oh, did you see that one?!"

    Also that I night I got to see my first bear in Estes Park at 1am crossing the street. My friend David thought it was a cow walking across the street at first.

      Yes, I downloaded a new star app before we shot the time lapse and the app showed me where to point the camera. I need to get a wider lens to I can get more of it in the frame.

      Hi Dave -
      What lens and settings did you use on the T4i for capturing the Perseid Meteor Shower? I saw you capturing the meteor shower using the T4i in one of the videos. Thanks!
