Perseids

August 19, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Last week was the peak of the Persieds meteor shower.  I drove out in the country and found a dark place to take some pictures.  I say dark, but compared to when I was a kid, it wasn't so dark.  I remember the darkness of the night 35ish years ago and how bright the Milky Way itself was.  Light pollution is a real problem everywhere.  I digress...  I should have used the Nikkor 14-24, but I left it at home.  I used my D610 with the  24-85 3.5 instead.  I also used my D90 with the 18-105 3.5.   I shot wide open for with ISO at 3200 and 8 to 10 seconds depending on where in the sky I was pointed.  I haven't done a meteor shower in over a year.  It seems it's always cloudy when it's time for a show.  I could have done better, but I still got a few and had a good time.  Enjoy.
