Description

257 frames stacked for the background with a Canon 5DmkII and a 20mm f1.4 Sigma Art lens on a Star Adventurer.

Each shot was taken at:

F2.0

ISO 3200

30 seconds

I captured 82 frames with meteors, but rejected 7 frames because the meteors were from a different radiant point. I layered these frames back on top of the stacked background for this result.
