The meteor shower this year, unlike the past couple of years, was great. It was clear out and I was treated to a wonderful evening full of surprises. I was able to watch the crescent Moon rise, saw the Moon, Jupiter and Venus conjunction, the Aurora came out and I saw the ISS and even caught an iridium flare for the first time ever. The Milky Way didnt disappoint either. I did have to drive about 20 mins outside of Saskatoon in order to escape the horrible light pollution we have here.
The images were shot using a Canon 5D MK II (which is new to me):
- Tokina 10-17mm fisheye at 15mm
- ISO 1600-3200
- 20-30 sec exp
