Televue NP-127is at f/4.2 on a CGE mount. The camera was a modified Canon XSi.
I was taking a series of 300s ISO 800 subs of M45 and discovered that three of the subs had meteor trails in them. The picture is the median combination of three consecutive five minute exposures with a 45s delay between photos. The three Leonids can be seen to follow almost exactly in a straight line. A most unusual series of events to capture so close together in time and space. I over brightened the combination to bring out the three separate Leonid trails from upper left to lower right.
