This weekend is the peak of the Perseid meteor shower, and it is also just waxing from a new moon, so it's not high in the sky. A perfect combination to see meteor showers. For the past two nights, I have gone out and attempted to capture one with my camera. On the first night I was not successful in capturing any, but last night I was able to capture two.

This is the better of them, the other one has the meteor crossing high tention powerlines, which I could not see with my bare eyes, even though I knew they were there, I still pointed my camera at them.

This image was captured with a Canon 7d and the Canon 18-200mm set at it's widest, most open settings 18mm, f3/5 and focal distance set to infinity and exposed for 30 seconds at ISO 1600 speed.
