Great job. I've spent many a freezing night trying to get shots like this. I know it's not easy! Congratulations!

Awesome! Perfect timing, eh?


Thank you! But it isn't too hard to time it with an intervalometer ;)

Right now I'm seeing a meteor a minute or more! If you have clear skies, go out and look up. You can get a decent meteor photo with the right equipment in these conditions within 30 minutes or less. I just saw two in the time it took me to check my battery levels.

Quoting mactoot:
WooHoo! Great capture! I wonder if this was a Geminid or one from comet Wirtanen. Presumably they originate from different parts of the sky...


This could be from Wirtanen. When I use my planisphere I can trace the radiant back to Pisces. The candidate name for this new shower is the Piscids according to the reports I'm reading:

New meteor shower might coincide with 2012 Geminids!
