I got a few. I thought this one was cool because It looks as though its slamming into Mt. Hood. Unfortunately, it happened while I was recomposing my shot and I missed the reflection into Trillium Lake.
I also got the north side of the Milky Way, and if you look real hard, Andromeda.

I am from NW Indiana and was out pretty much all night. I fell asleep a couple of times but what a beautifully cool night to be outside under the (shooting) stars.

These are pretty weak. These are straight conversions of RAW(CR2) images. I am unable at this time to figure out how to clean up better.

Here my first attempt at meteor shots.

Taken with a 350D, 18-55 IS set to 18mm, ISO 400, f3.5, 30 seconds, remote shutter release.

After taking a few shots, I noticed my photos were becoming increasingly soft. I turn on my light and found out that my whole setup was covered in condensation and was saturated. Took in all inside to dry out after that.

I took some photos up at Blue Canyon in CA last night. I could not get my 50mm to focus on infinity (figured that out this morning) but managed a few good shots with my 24-105. Unfortunately I had to push the ISO to get the right exposure, so it's noisy. I took about 20 30-second exposures I plan on stacking to see how they look, but will do that later.

I see a LCD magnifier in my future.

Brendon, nice capture. What's your set up?

I see the meteor in the last one. What's the squiggle?

I'm bummed. I had two cameras running and caught dozens of meteors, but most were quite faint and not really worth the effort to process. The second pitfall came about 2 hours into the shoot when humidity levels really started to rise and water condensed on the lenses. Of course, this happened after I had already gone to bed so I've got 3 hours or so worth of useless images from two cameras. D'oh!

This was probably the best one from the bunch. Was really hoping for a big fireball, but no such luck.

I plan on going out again. But here's two I've taken so far.

I'm not sure about the second pic. I don't recall seeing two airplanes or anything. Weird thing is, the very next shot has the same two lines as well.
