Equipment Details:

Nikon D500 and Irex 15 mm lens

Post-processing Details:

This photo uses Photoshop, Gradientxterminator and Topaz AI software to correct for the bright Moon background and to restore the image as a night sky image. Bright Moon is a constant problem with meteor photography and this is my current attempt to control its effects.

Image Details:

This is a bright Lyrid meteor captured on peak night from my backyard in the foothills above Tucson AZ.
