More space now with showers

So the Lyrid meteor shower was supposed to peak last night with about 15-20 meteors an hour.  I took the new camera out with hopes of trying a long exposure to see what I could get.  What did I find?  One falling star (opposite of camera's location), a band of coyotes howling all around me, and the fact that I can't escape city lights around me.

Billions and Billions and Billions of stars . . . either that or my ISO is too high.

Something caught going from the bright star in the middle and moving left (select the photo to see it full sized).
