Kinda surprised no other Orionid Meteor Shower images posted here ....
Others - post yours!!
The Orionid meteor shower is one of two meteor showers created by debris from Comet Halley. The Eta Aquarids in May is the second meteor shower created by debris left by Comet Halley.

The Orionid meteor shower peaked Wednesday 10/21 morning, but too many clouds then.
So I was imaging Friday morning 10/23 2:30am - 6am, this lone one going "up" captured 5:55am. That's a plane trail lower right.

Here is a star trail of the 700+ images, this is looking near due south, slightly east.
There were slight clouds at times that take away from the star trail crispness.
Each is ISO: 1250, Exposure: 13.0 sec, Aperture: 2.8, Focal Length: 11mm

I use Canon gear...have several bodies and lenses and am quite pleased with them.

Workflow: DSLR download >> Apple Aperture (Basic PP) >> StarStax (save cumulative frames) >> Time Lapse Assembler >> iMovie (add sound) >> YouTube

Great photos. I viewed 25-30 in an hour an a half at one point between 10/22 and 10/23. Unfortunately the weather didn't allow me to capture anything.

Good capture. I was waiting all week for the meteor shower, but mother nature decided that my state, New South Wales need a thunderstorm.
