Anyone having any luck? I'll be going back out in a couple of hours, but no luck catching any so far. I've seen quite a few, though.
I have to stick to 30s exposures, otherwise I'm sure I would have gotten something so far.

:(

Expecting showers over here... bleh
 
So, is it tonight or was it last night?
 
I've never tried to shoot the Perseid, but I've seen so many times. The shooting stars are so fleeting. I'm a newbie here, but is it possible that with a 30, the shooting stars are actually disappearing, through their movement?

I don't think it's like old school bulb. I haven't tried it yet check the manual, but I remember reading on this site on someones post you click to open the shutter then click to close.

That's only with a wireless remote.

Without a remote, you have to hold it down.

Wired remotes have a slide lock to hold it down.
 
overcast. eh


just tell people it's a meteor with turrets or something.

ahahaha

unless it's very small it should be able to show up
