One way to keep the beer from freezing is to keep your car HVAC runningYeah I've been watching things develop. Even if the cloud cover holds off, it may be challenging with the low temperatures. I can deal with cold (although I hate it), but if its below 20 my beer will freeze.
My general approach is; if I see one, it was a good show. Same way I approach lightning.
Thank you for the compliment and comments. I was shooting with medium ISOs...5000-8000 for most of the time, although later in the shoot I decided to drop down to 3000 or below to get more star trails in. Do you use high-ISO noise reduction? I have tried it before, but I found it doesn't seem to improve much on my camera unless I'm at ridiculously high ISOs, like 12000+, and even then it almost seems to create noise on a different scale to compensate for what it removes (as in, the pictures start to have a look as if they are highly compressed JPGs or just look unnatural). Regardless, it looks like the Geminids in my shots aren't too terribly different looking from what you have, so it may just be that Geminids are on the fainter side.Jeff, that snowy road nightscape is beautiful! How long were the meteor exposures? I try to stay around 4-8 seconds to let the meteor own more brightness vs. surrounding sky & crank ISO somewhat obscenely to compensate. You may be doing similar, but I'm not familiar with D750. Looks like you have great sky conditions there. I noted similar to you that these were mostly pretty faint, at least compared to decent Perseids.
