Geminids Photograph

Taken with a bridge type camera at 4:16 UT 14th December 2010 from Devon, England.
Exposure time one minute.
The field of view is very approx. 10 degrees.

I saw four with the naked eye and was frankly surprised at how many more are visible fading into the background noise. Before fiddling around with the photograph the four naked eye meteors and a few very small trailed ones were visible against an inky black noise free sky. Even more severe processing reveals the presence of many more faint trails. You can get a sense of this from the above picture.
