Well, last night I was hunting for Perseid meteors. I saw dozens of beautiful shooting stars, but not a single one made it onto my camera sensor, even though I used a wide angle lens and exposed for one hour in total, pointing directly at the radiant. Seems I had lots of bad luck. However, visually it was a great night! Here is the stack of all my unlucky images.
