Geminid Shooting Stars

After posting my Short Guide to Shooting the Geminid Meteors yesterday, I got out at midnight to try to capture some. Last night didn’t really give the show I was hoping for but still managed to capture some. I left the camera on a timelapse taking a shot every 20 seconds. I didn’t use all of the shots as the front of the lens ended up with some condensation forming, but I used 112 of them and merged them all together to give a star trail effect. There are 15 meteors in the shot, can you spot them all? As you can see, I got some headlights on the nearby IC1 too.

They will also be present tonight (and indeed for a few more nights), so it’s not too late if you want to try to capture some.
