Milky Perseids

When I saw how clearly the Milky Way was rendering to the west, I couldn't resist pointing one camera away from the meteor shower radiant to test my luck. With over 27 meteors, my luck was very good!

 

Image Notes: This was taken on my D700 on a Rokinon 14 mm. Again this is a composite image, taken from 324 25 second shots at f/3.2, 25 seconds. One other image was taken at a longer shutter speed/lower ISO for foreground lighting (via moonlight).
