Trying to Catch some Geminids

I went out last night for a couple of hours to try a test run on some meteor catching. I managed to catch a single meteor using my D7000 and Sigma 10-20mm wide-angle lens. It's fairly faint in the photo, but it was REALLY bright visually. The Geminids peak this Tuesday morning, and I am planning to wake up very early and try to get some more images of this meteor shower. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks, Roberto! We'll see how it goes on Tuesday morning. Forecast is for clear, cold skies... :-)
