Stars over Ladies View, Kerry

Stars over Ladies View, Kerry

I took this image on 9th August 2012 while on holiday in Kerry. I took a spin out to Ladies View outside Killarney to try to capture the International Space Station. I was thrilled with the shot on my camera LCD screen, but was really taken aback when I spotted a Perseid shooting star & the milky way in the same 84 second exposure.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II (Canon)
Camera Lens:
Focal Length: 16 mm
Exposure: 84 sec
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 800
