I was taking photos of some stars when I noticed this shooting star was wavy toward the end (start?) of it's trail. My cousin suggesting that it could be the CCD in my camera or as it spiralling as it enters the atmosphere. This is a heavily cropped image

It's shutter vibration. It begins at one end of the trail (which I'm guessing is the start of the exposure) and quickly damps out.
