Nikon D200 w/ 10.5mm F2.8 Fisheye @F4 ISO400 2 minute guided exposure on Vixen GP


I wanted to have a photo showing both the Zodiacal Light and the Milky Way. I used the 10.5mm DX Fisheye and while making exposures, I noticed a banding in the glow of the Zodiacal Light. I had read that the tail of C.McNaught might be seen near the Zodiacal Light. When I downloaded the files, I noticed that one file had a meteor and M31 also visible, I guess I got more than I bargained for
