Yes it sure is. There was originally about 150 images that I took, 20 of which had decent meteors in them. I used layer masks in Photoshop to let only the meteors shine through.

Very cool. You did a great job recording the effects of light pollution on our nightly viewing.


Thanks for sharing.

Probably not the best I can do, and it doesn't hold a candle to most of this thread ...

Jackson Visitor Center, Paradise, Mount Rainier National Park, taken about 3 years ago on my 40D, exposure a much-too-long 60 seconds, 12mm, ISO 800.

Taken last Friday from the LIGO Hanford Observatory, shortly after the quarter moon set. A much more reasonable 30 second exposure, but there's some star trailing still. 12mm, ISO 1000.

Shooting on a 7DII now, so I probably shouldn't be afraid to venture into the ISO 1600 range or so.

Some clicking occurred, a few lenses were involved, that's about all I know ...

I found this photo, today, in a folder full of RAW files from my Canon 550d. This was the last pic of the MW i took with that camera, two years ago.

Bought a new monitor specifically for editing pictures, the BenQ sw2700pt, it's amazing and like seeing my pictures in a whole new way. It's hard to look at my pictures on my old monitor now, lol, makes some of my previous editing decisions make me laugh. I decided to go back to a few of my previous shots and re-edit them with the new monitor, figured I'd share them with you guys here:
