I planned to watch this year’s Perseid meteor shower at a mountain cabin (‘Mödlingerhütte’), at an altitude of 1523m. Unfortunately the sky was quite overcast and only a part of the southern night sky was clear for viewing the stars. Nevertheless, I enjoyed being outside at night and tried to capture a few interesting shots. Equipment used: E-M5II & 12mm f2.0 lens.

I took this image already some time ago during my visit to New York. I was just trying to compose an image with some people on the busy streets when the crying baby appeared on the screen.. So I just took a snapshot with the building in the back as a contrast and I like how this actually turned out. I used my E-M5 and 25mm f1.8 lens for this photo.

Another image from my late night photoshoot (at 3am…) during the Perseid meteor shower. For this image I have stacked 60 individual images á 13sec exposure time with the free software StarStaX and I am quite pleased with the result.

I took this image while watching the geminid meteor shower two weeks ago in Leoben. I did not capture any trails on this image but I like how the milky way was still visible against the illumination from the city. Exposure was done for 13sec at 1600 ISO with my 12mm f2.0 lens.
