Details:
The temperatures were in the -15 range and the windchill -25. I spent a few minutes looking for meteors at various times throughout the night but saw none visually. There were quite a few on my Nikon D800 camera though, but compared to the Geminids I would say I got a lot more meteors on the night of the Geminids. This meteor shower performed pretty much as predicted! The peak activity did seem to be between 2am and 4am. 20 layers used in this composite.

Awesome shot(s) - great composite!
Was each exposure 25 seconds, or the combined composite?
