Astrophoto Home Page | Home Page  


This was practially the last shot of the evening and finally a nice bright meteor showed itself. At right is the last quarter moon rising behing a hilltop tree.
All of the night's shots from this camera (30 second exposures every 5 minutes) were used to create the time-lapse video.
