Perseid Meteor Shower with EP-3
Aug 14, 2012

Took these the other night, along with a few hundred others with nothing in them. Got a number of shots but these two were the longest.

I took them from the Mt. Diablo state park in California, about an hour outside of San Francisco.

Used the Panny 20mm for it's light gathering and fairly wide field of view. Was the first time I wished I had a nice fisheye though.

This close to big city lights I couldn't have the shutter open for too long. 10-20 seconds was about as much before the images started getting washed out from all the light pollution.

Still, I was happy to get these two shots. It's pretty hard catching the little buggers.. they come on all over the sky and it's pretty much down to luck.

First image is a full view, second is a crop.
