Canon EOS 60D and Canon EF 16-35mmf/2.8L II USM lens at 20 second f/2.8 3200iso used for the sky and 30 second f/4 1250iso used for the foreground, both were taken in the same location about 15 miles North of Salem, South Dakota. The meteor/milky way exposure was taken at 3:24am 5-7-2013 and the tractor shortly after, using only a flashlight to light-paint the tractor. This was by far the biggest and brightest meteor I have ever captured.
