I could do less time more exposures. How would it go with stacking and star trails and movement?
What were you planning on using for the stacking? Does it cope with the distortion inherent in wide angle lenses?

I'd recommend the DSLR be mounted on a GEM, and arrange it to be tracking through the area where you expect the meteors. Don't start or finish too close to the horizon or atmospherics will make things even harder.
