Epic Lightning Photos with Canon Rebel XT, Acquisition Details

I was down in Avon on Friday when I saw some heat lightning rolling through the north. It was crazy consistent, so I snapped some pics with my iPhone. By the time I got back to my apartment, the main body of the storm was approaching. I lucked out with my balcony, it was a perfect shelter from the rain and view to the horizon. I set my camera to ISO 100 for 5 sec exposures then locked the shutter. Here are my best shots out of about 150.
