Radiant of meteors

A clear night sky, new moon and the Geminides almost give this meteor cocktail shown below by showing a radiant. This means that all the meteors appear to come from one point. This point is located in the constellation Gemini, from where the meteor shower is named. Unfortunately often times stubborn cloud fields joined the clear night sky, hence we had only 3 hours time to take pictures.
