348/365: Geminids.

Ok this was a ton of fun. First time trying the stacked star trails technique. I spotted enough meteors on the way home that a full blown photo shoot was in order tonight. The night started with clouds but opened up between the magic 10pm-2am that the Geminid shower tends to peak. I went out with two DSLRs, my D200 with a 10mm lens pointed north and set to longer exposure times. This image is from my other camera, the D800 with my 24-70 on it, aimed smack at Orion and set for a series of 10 second long images at ISO 1250. I stacked this using StarStax and you can clearly see meteors between the star trails, and a few planes heading to Pearson lower in the sky (dashed lines with red dots).
