Perseid Meteor, Near Mt. Hood

Perseid Meteor Shower Puts on a Show

Decided to leave city lights behind and watch the annual Perseid Meteor Shower from Mt. Hood this year. My cameras fogged up the first night from the humid summer air. So I armed myself with a 99-cent batter-operated fan to blow at the lenses the second night, and was rewarded with this little stunner around 2AM.

paulelijah: Thanks! Didn't think that cheap little fan would work, but it did! The second night, I also took cameras inside periodically until they dehumidified. Next year I'm wrapping handwarmers around the lenses! Thanks again for your comment.

Amazing picture, great job! Also, I love your tip about killing the humidity for photos. I never thought about that, it's genius!
