Finally got my images back from the shop after spending 2 hours last Thursday night trying to image the Perseid Meteor shower. Only had 3 images out of 8 with any meteors present but it was fun to try. This image is the best using a Nikon F2, 50mm at f2.8 and Fuji Supra 800 film for 15 minutes. Kinda cool that it caught m31, m33 and the double cluster...
