Nice!

How many shots did you have to take to get it exposed properly?

What kind of camera are you shooting with?

Re: Nice!

This was my first attempt of the "Nalgene meteor effect", although I took about 6 shots in this theme, the first one coming out the best with the moonlight on the clouds behind. My climbing partners in the tent were pretty confused as to what the heck I was doing out there running around for a couple of hours turning my flashlight on and off and divebombing the ground with my Nalgene!

I was shooting with a Rebel XTi, my "backcoutry" camera. It's the best compromise of weight/cost/quality I've found in an SLR (even though my heavier 50D or the 5D I cannot afford have better noise reduction).
