Canon G1X at the Meteor Shower (August 2012)
Aug 13, 2012

I just received my camera a couple of days ago, and it arrived just at the right time...

Here are some shots I grabbed last night of the meteor shower. All shots were taken at ISO400, F/2.8 and 60". The star trails are made of 10 single exposures, and were layered in Photoshop using the "Lighten" blending method. Did some level corrections, but that's it.

First shot shows the rotation of the stars around the north star, which is hidden by the tree. Second photo shows a very strong meteor, and the third is a crop of it. Fourth shot is just for fun (it's a single image).

Hope you enjoy.
