This is a stack of 36 images (total of 1150 seconds) shot using Astrotracer on a travel tripod from my heavily light-polluted back yard. I found one image with a Perseid meteor and another with a mystery satellite, of course both of them were washed away after stacking, so I manually blended them back in post.
(Mystery satellite turned out to be CSO 1, a French military imaging satellite.)
