I captured a long meteor on 2 consecutive images. Timing was a coincidence happening just before one 30 second exposure ended. Efforts to highlight it in Photoshop either drown it in noise or render it very artificial looking.
OTOH, I was using Jupiter to manually focus the lens using magnified live view. Seeing a trace of moons with my medium wide zoom, I threw on my telephoto zoom to capture this shot @ 250 mm. This is a full resolution crop.

Jupiter & four moons visible, one just barely outside the disk.
