I went out to photo the geiminids and wasn't sure what to expect. I had photographed the perseid shower and managed to get a shot with up to 8-12 meteors and the aurora way back in april! I was hoping for similar results, and while I saw a lot of meteors I only managed to capture just this one. Brilliant blue streaks across the sky. I will be going out again to try for another few shots. Carl zeiss 21 2.8 and 5D mark II
