 Hm, very possibly, though I was basing things on this link:
http://www.astropix.com/HTML/H_OTHER/METEORST.HTM which someone posted to
the list last week, that says to leave the lens wide open, which is what I
did. Obviously it was too open, or I wasn't far enough from other light
sources giving general atmospheric sky glow (which seems pretty likely). He
does point out that you should tape everything in place before starting,
which was a good tip -- my hands got pretty chilled changing lenses over
when I tried that (at -8c, you don't want to have gloves off for any longer
than you can manage) so I was pleased not to have to worry about anything
