Orion Sirius mount, Nikon D300 with 24mm f/2 lens at f/2.8. 650 frames at 30 seconds, ISO 6400.
I wanted to get meteor trails showing the radiant near Castor. Since it wass snowing near Reno had to go far south. Worked well, but all the really brilliant meteors were near the horizon, and thus not in the picture.
