Perseid meteor

By chedd  
I was extremely fortunate to capture this image earlier today during this beautiful meteor shower.
Taken with just my DSLR @ 16mm, 30 second exposure at ISO1600 / F6.3

Thanks for looking

Well done on the capture. I wonder if you could take some noise out, it might look better.

To be honest xGei8ht, I tried to remove as much "noise" out of the image as I could, given my mediocre IP abilities.
As you can see from my other photos posted here they are usually 1.5 to 2 hour integrated exposures, this one here was just the camera pointing at the sky and luck.
However thanks for your feedback.
