Perseid Meteor Shower - August 12, 2004

A Bright Perseid Meteor Fireball

  • Exposure: 10 minutes @ f/2.8
  • Lens: SMC Pentax 75 mm f/2.8 AL
  • Camera: Pentax 67
  • Film: Fuji NHGII 800
  • Location: Ritter Butte, Oregon
  • Date: 12-Aug-2004
  • Notes: It was a very good meteor shower; unfortunately, I used "dead" film which caused some horrendous digital post-processing problems; nevertheless, the bright fireball near the Andromeda Galaxy made it worthwhile.
