When it Rains, it Showers!

Over the weekend I reviewed and edited the many images I captured last Wednesday night/Thurday morning of the spectacular Geminids meteor shower. I processed 8 images a bit differently than normal, rotating each image (to compensate for the earth’s rotation over time) to show the approximate travel of each individual meteor, from it’s radiant point (the constellation Gemini). Here is the final result:

2017 Geminids Meteor Shower

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body
  • Rokinon 14mm, f/2.8 manual lens
  • Bogen 3221 tripod, with ballhead
  • ISO 3200
  • Aperture f/2.8
  • Shutter: 24 seconds
  • Processing: 8 images were composited into a single image, using Photoshop CC / images were rotated to compensate for the movement of the earth over time, thus allowing the individual meteors to flow from the general area of the Gemini constellation, the radiant point of the Geminids
