With no northern lights to chase yet, I went out last night in order to get some of the Milky Way shots, taking advantage of the clear sky. Found a nice location set-up the cameras and let them shooting and I just start moving around when I realized moving my flashlight around the bushes that a lynx was staring at me. Not a big cat, but scary to watch it, staying as a sphinx, looking at me…..Anyway the night was getting better when I started having some of the earlier Perseides meteors crossing the sky and actually framing some of them. Two of them were falling in the opposite direction where I was shooting, leaving behind a celestial golden - reddish trace. Photos were imported and edited in LR.

Have you considered flat fielding which would get rid of the edge vignetting?
