Perseid Meteor Shower & Star Trails

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

I decided to try and capture some of the Perseid Meteor Shower this year.  Instead of staying up all night with the good camera, I just stuck the GoPro outside and let it take 30-second exposures all night.  This allowed me to catch just a few meteors, and a lot of airplanes.  Since I captured the entire night, I removed all of the airplane shots and put together some star trails with the 4 meteors.

The Center of the Milky Way

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

I have finally captured the visible band of our galaxy!  While the actual center of the Milky Way is behind the trees, this is by far the best shot I have captured.  I even got a shooting star in this one.Kevin Heffner - Milky Way _MG_2806

 

I thought this picture had some great detail, even if I did capture an airplane and power line.

Faint Milky Way

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Alright…I’m getting closer.  Now I just need to eliminate the light pollution of Atlanta and I’ll be set.  It may be faint, but starting right over the middle tree and going up and to the left is the “visible” band of our galaxy.  I will get there!  At least I captured some nice stars at 4:30am.
