Meteor Trail & M15

Meteor Trail & M15

Imaged a meteor trail during some calibration runs as it past the field of view of M15 Tuesday night around 11pm.
This single 4 minute exposure was taken with a 6-inch refractor (Meade AR6) and a Nikon D3000 at prime focus.

I see no trail. Upload the wrong frame?

Hard to believe that is a 4 minute exposure. Where's the beef? Recalibrate.

Correct frame. It was taken with an Astro-Physics MACH1 mount that was somewhat well polar aligned and on a rock solid pier. Couldn't see oblong stars even after 7-minutes.
