Here's my captures of the Perseids Meteor Shower from the Mollie Brown Observatory.  We are still experiencing cloudy nights as you can see.  Also, on the heaviest night, the camera dewed over and only 1 pic out of 790 captured anything.

Thanks, Steve!

 

I find it surprising that just a regular camera can pick up as much as it does when shooting the sky.  Besides meteors, there are all kinds of star formations that show up.

This is with the Canon Rebel T5 camera with the standard lens set at 18mm at F3.5 for the widest shot.  It was set up on a rigid tripod and the exposure time was set at 18 seconds, which is about the longest you can go without star trails.  The ISO was 3200.

 

It is fun to see the Andromeda galaxy, the Pleiades and other favorites standing out.

I think I need to put one of those cameras on my wish list.

 I think most DSLRs can do this. If you look through my gallery, you'll see a few:
