t-Herculids Meteor Shower over 3 planets

Postby dybaxter » Tue May 31, 2016 5:40 pm

I caught this last night 5/31/2016 from my back yard around midnight. 3 planets, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter to the West. In addition a meteor from the Herculids i believe came to show off. Some thin clouds but not to bad. I did try to lighten the meteor to try to get it to stand out from the clouds is was behind, but did not want to alter the images to much. Used a 14mm prime Nikkor lens F2.8 30 secs.
Was a great night to just sit and watch the shower and drink a cup of joe.
