This is a composite image of the Geminids meteor shower taken with my Canon 6D and a Rokinon 14mm lens at f2.8. I took hundreds of exposures over the night, all while tracking these stars. Then I picked all the shots with meteors in them and digitally added them together into Photoshop to create this image... a near "all night" capture of 74 Geminids. This is a really wide view, covering most of the entire sky. The Milky Way is visible across several constellations... including Orion, Taurus and Perseus. All the meteors seem to radiate from a point in Gemini, an effect due to perspective. Those tiny meteors near the radiant point are ones seen coming nearly "head on" to the camera.

This ia another composite of the Geminids taken with my Canon 6D and a Rokinon 14mm lens at f2.8. Late at night, with Gemini crossing the zenith, and meteors seen "falling" straight down in every direction. This image contains 49 Geminids, digitally stacked in Photoshop. Taken on the morning of December 14 2017.
What is that down on the ground?! Alien? Christmas Tree? No, it's Shane who just happened to stand out there with his camera, taking pictures. This is one of those unplanned shots, as I had no idea he was going to stand there and be lit up perfectly with his head lamp. It turns out that I like the result
This ia another composite image of the Geminids taken with my Canon 6D and a Rokinon 14mm lens at f2.8. This was towards the end of the night. Some bright long meteors were captured heading down to the east. The Big Dipper is visible on the top left, oriented vertically.
