Image Details:

I was able to get over to Mueller State Park to try to capture some Perseids right after Moon set. I saw many in multiple directions and captured a few. This photo combines two meteors captured at this location, minutes apart. These two were among the best, though the top one, above the Pleiades, is quite faint. I was also happy to capture Orion (just risen over Pikes Peak), Taurus, and The Pleiades.
