Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower
Posted By: Jordan217, 01-29-2017, 06:48 AM

The Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower 29/07/2016.

After plans of shooting the shower at another location failed, I was on my drive home when I remembered this lone windmill from previous scouting, and figured it was my last chance to capture the meteorite shower at its peak. I didn't get to shoot for as long as hoped, but still witnessed a great shower display and even managed to capture Airglow for the first time. Each meteorite comes from a separate exposure. Cheers for taking a look.

This is a great shot. Next time, remember to just go here first so you can get more shots to stack! Turned out really well.
