Perseid Meteor Shower ... consolation prize

Having failed with previous meteor showers in the past, I took a more defensive approach this year by attempting a double target ... the Perseids and the north celestial pole region. If I fail again this year with the Perseids (which I did due to VERY low activity), I still have my polar region effort from the all-nighter.

I still need some processing to remove the irritating gaps due to the flash card's slow write speed between exposures but here is a quick preview of a potentially neat photo: http://www.perseus.gr/Astro-Star-Trails-2005-08-13.htm .... there is something to be said of very dark skies!
