Description

Last week the Earth went through rocks cloud. Thanks to this we had a chance to see a beautiful display of meteor shower - Perseids. As expected this year's maximum was more than twice as stronger - about 1:10-1:20 (CEST) ZHR was about 250! So we could observe 3-4 meteors per minute, including some very nice bolids.

I make one mosiac with Milky Way and some meteors - unfortunately not so many because I didn't have luck and meteors showed not in place where my lens looked.

Equipment:
Canon 500D on Vixen Polarie + Samyang 14 mm F / 2,8

3 photos mosaic (stacks) - 35 frames per stack-> 35 x 60sec ISO 1600
