Canon T3i 10mm lens at F3.2, 5 sec, ISO 3200, tripod, no drive. Cropped from original 160 degree field diagonal corner-to-corner shot.
Perseid BOLIDE caught with automatic intervalometer-timed camera. Shutter opened mid-streak as evidenced by green ionization trail and sudden bright track recorded. Nice terminal burst.
