Sky at Night - markhumpage
August 14 & 15th 2011.  I travelled down to the West Somerset coast for the Perseid display, the same coastline  that Samuel Taylor Coleridge walked over 200 yrs ago and which inspired meteor ramblings from his famous poem 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. If you look at the large version you will note 3 Perseids and 1 other satellite. The bright moon made watching/capturing difficult this year and the very wide angle shot makes for a good composition but lesser meteor detail.  Captured with Olympus E5 & 8mm fisheye. Want to know how I capture shots such as this? - http://tinyurl.com/3pckhkc Thanks to http://www.meteorwatch.org
