I was up at Lake Vermilion this past weekend and couldn't resist shooting the start of the Perseid Meteor Shower. Should reach peak rates between August 10 – 13, but they’re visible throughout most of August. I was happy to see most of my shots had meteors in them even though I may not have seen them when shooting. The moon is waning so the stars are bright!

I plan on hitting the peak showers, should be fun!

#4



#5 In the larger version of this I counted at least 5 meteors!



#6 One in the middle of the Milky Way.

Cool shots! I was out in the boat till about 1am this morning, saw some cool trails while waiting for the fish to bite. This dark phase of the moon makes for some good viewing.

They must be linked in from another site, all I can see are little red X's

Anybody who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian.

Dan, what were your settings? Lens? ISO? Aperature? Time?
we were out at the Buffalo River Science Center, Monday night and did ok after the Astronomy Proffesor shut down all the lights to use the big telescope but some of them were the best quality.

Paul, all the EXIF data is intact if you have an EXIF viewer installed in your browser. I use EXIF Viewer, a free add on for Firefox, not sure about other browsers.

The basic settings were 20 - 30 second exposures, ISO 6400, f4.0. Fairly standard for me for star shooting. If you don't want as much Milky way or other stars you can just lower your ISO to get the look you want. Lowering ISO lowers the amount of ambient light you will get in your shot.

Here are a couple more from last weekend.

Nice! I went out on the 12th and pretty slow here. Mostly satellite pics for me. Saw a few nice ones but not in the spot I was aimed at.

Be Thankful smile
