Noel Carboni worked his Photoshop magic on just 45-seconds worth of data at ISO1600 from the Canon 40D and the 17-55mm zoom at 17mm. The result is this!

There are three faint Perseids here, you couldn't actually see them naked eye over the Moonglow.

Just 10-seconds before I started imaging a VERY bright meteor went through the field of view, it all went downhill after that.

The camera was mounted on the amazing little Astrotrac which performed flawlessly throughout the night.

Thank you Victor :D
Unfortunately I was completely clouded out last night, so I couldn't put into practice what I'd learned from the night before. Never mind, we still have the Orionids and Geminids to come before year end :D :D
