Another Monday Moldy Oldie. This is from 1994 (I think) during the Perseid meteor shower in the mountains around Santa Barbara (that's the glow behind me and the telescope). I don't remember the specifics (I do have them dutifully recorded in my comp book) but it was a long exposure...long enough for me to open the shutter and go sit at that telescope in the lower right corner and track the Triffad and Lagoon nebulae...which if you are nice, I might publish in a future post. On the left, you can also see one of the little meteor(ite?)s.
