Perseids with Cassiopeia

The best shot I got all night of the Perseids meteor shower was the very first one. It's hard to tell, but this meteor is slicing right through Cassiopeia. I took a one minute exposure at the Three Knobs Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway at Crabtree Falls near Burnsville, NC, USA. Taken with a Nikon D5000 24-85 mm zoom at 24 mm, 200 ISO f3.5 1 minute exposure.
