Top Missed!

Dew and fog were a big problem. I had to wipe off the lens between shots. 

Special Thanks to

Mark Egan for arranging our group of star-gazers together for a wonderful trip and for the briefing before the event with information on where, when and how. This information can still be found on Leonid 2001 Brief   and his Awesome Leonid Article. And to the Pontchartrain Astronomy Club for letting us join them for the show.

Additional Leonid 2001 Photos can be found at these sites.
