EarthSky Facebook friend Matt X. Smith said: Quadrantid captured from Paphos, Cyprus at roughly 1AM (continuous exposure shots for 2 hours)
Canon SX40HS; 4.3 MM, F/2.7, ISO 3800, TV- 25.5. Lots of darkening done in Adobe Lightroom and de-clarifying to get rid of the grain – had to tackle the brightness of the moon aswell (and street light pollution) plus added clarity to the meteor itself…was quite lucky to get it central … before editing the meteor was barely noticeable! I did also manage to capture one the night before that aswell but was much smaller but was directly into the zenith.
