Perseids

This is a bit enhanced, but shows some of the Perseid meteors we saw last night. (The streaks on the right). Most were faint, although we saw some that lit up and left a trail in the sky.  This is a 30 second exposure, with an 18mm lens. I'm a bit disappointed in the focus, but that could simply be atmospheric noise. (Or else my lens's infinity isn't infinity.) I've stretched the contrast and brightness as 30s is more than enough to overexpose the image.
