Perseid meteor

Perseid meteor and Summer Triangle John Elder, 18 August 2016. Equipment: Canon EOS 60Da DSLR camera

The photograph was taken with a Canon 60Da DSLR: 30 seconds at f/5 and ISO4000.

I was lucky enough to capture one of the brightest Perseids that I had ever seen as it streaked out of the ‘summer triangle’ along the Milky Way. There is a weather vane in the foreground and the slopes of two roofs.
