With the heat wave the fireflies are going bonkers here!
Our loghome, Wed June 20, 2012 night, about 3 hrs worth during shortest night of the year.
I had to start imaging at 11pm, too light before that.
400+ 25 sec exposures, 15-85 zoom lens at 15mm on crop T1i @ ISO800.
Stacked using StarStaX.

As a bonus, there is a iridium satellite flare 1/2 way up and 1/3 way in from LH side, can you spot it?
