Lyonids Meteor Shower 22 April 2012
Took 222 30 second pictures. No meteors. Last 100+ were bad due to dew. I adjusted (brightness and contrast) one shot to show where the camera was looking for the first 60 shots. I ran 50+ into Windows Movie Maker to show the star's motion. The red and blue pixels that don't move are camera noise.

First paid roll of film through the local (Subic Bay, Philipines) lab. They had to print it 3 times to get it to look right. Prior to this, film was flown to Clark AFB for processing.
