August 12, 2012 - Clouds rolled in strong around 3am but I was able to catch a few meteors before then. One of the side effects of our drought is that there have hardly been any lightning bugs this was nice to see and image a few.

August 11, 2012 - Setup in the field south of The Nars (Narrows) near the Woolum Acces of the Buffalo River. Saw a lot of Perseids but most werent too bright. I did capture the end of one that was probably pretty spectacular.

August 10, 2012 - A few dim meteors and some shots from Boxley Valley along the Buffalo National River and at Hedges Pouroff looking up into the Upper Buffalo Wilderness.

August 9, 2012 - A few dim meteors and a satellite flare.

August 8, 2012 - Once nice meteor before moonrise and two other ones after. I also did some more more Milky Way shots and earlier in the day I managed to photograph this jumping spider.

August 7, 2012 - A few meteors...nothing great

There was about a hour window of dark sky after sunset and before moonrise so I headed up to Mount Magazine to try to image the Milky Way. There was a lot of haze and thin cirrus so the images werent as good as they could have been. I checked out the sunset before setting up for the Milky Way shots on the other side of the mtn.

August 6, 2012 - A few meteors...nothing great.

August 2, 2012 - I caught two nice Perseid Meteors

August 1, 2012 - Moon and clouds made meteor photography difficult. That will likely be the case for several days but I still caught a couple meteors with the 50mm lens.

July 31, 2012 - I caught several nice meteors including this Southern Delta Aquariid Fireball (outshining the bright moon light), this nice Perseid Fireball (after moonset), and this little Perseid Meteor with the Andromeda Galaxy (bottom right) and Triangulum Galaxy (top middle edge) visible
