Shooting Persied

So I went out tonight to attempt to photograph the Perseid meteor shower. The only thing I accomplished was getting stung (yet again) by a hornet. I could have sworn, hornets weren’t active at night. Guess what- at least one is! I was having technical difficulties with my camera. I couldn’t keep the shutter open for more than about a minute and a half, whereas the other night I took exposures as long as 10 minutes. Well anyway- the happy part of the story- I did see meteors- just didn’t photograph any!

58 second exposure
