Meteor Shower 12-9-10

I went down to one of my familiar spots to see if a could catch the Perseid meteor shower that was expected.

It was not quite the show I was expecting to see. There was probably one every 2-3 mins and most were to the south west( I was facing west)

 

I never thought I caught any at all and was plesently surprised when I got home and downloaded the images to view full size.

 

I don't know how many are from planes as some seem to be taking the same path

 

Taken at ISO1600 at F2.8 with my trusted Tokina 11-16mm /Nikon D300 mix

 

I cropped a good bit off the bottom of this image.

 

I must thank every one who takes the time to comment and fave my shots.

It is appreciated
