It's Pleiades, AKA Seven Sisters I think.

My two attempts. It was a pretty funny night! My buddy shows up with two chairs, binoculars, blankets, extra batteries, remote, camera and no tripod. We froze sitting out in the field. I should have planned more and had some foreground interest in the shots. I was amazed at how few meteors that we saw. I really thought they would be falling fast and furious. This is definetly a different realm of photography!

This is from about 350 photos, taken at 6 seconds each. Captured a few goodies in there...

aparis99, your shutter had to be open a lot longer than 6 sec. for star trails like that.
Or are you using image stacking ?

Yes correct, I should've said "350 STACKED" photos... I decided to do like most other people and have a non-trail pic with meteors :oops: Here that is:

Nice addition to the set Scott, for me #3, always nice to see foreground in the image (IMO)

Great shots, Scott. I like the inclusion of the Pleiades, and (I think) Jupiter.

Been meaning to post this since the Geminid's peak but got busy with Christmas.

Canon T3i, 50mm f1.4, 5 second exposure.

I managed to get a Geminid between The Pleiades and Jupiter, with Aldeberan on the left side of the frame.

This may be too late as an alert, but the Quadrantid Meteor show peaks after midnight tonight Jan 2 to early morning Jan 3. I doubt I'll be out there though, as the temps are going down below zero F tonight. I'm a lover of winter, but the days of camping out below zero are long past for me. Post any pics if you can brave the northern hemisphere winter.

Great framing Jim, with recognizable heavenly features yours really stands out.
