Perseid 13/8/17

Recommended Posts

Orion

Captured a few beautiful Perseids with my Canon 1100d, fixed tripod. 18mm.  I saw this Perseid and was brighter than Jupiter. I would go as far as saying, Venus brightness.  Time 02:25 BST 13/8.  I was able to run the radio setup from 12/13th Aug, which showed some echoes, though there is not always correlation with optical or visual detection because the ones detected by radio might be outside the UK (I think - e.g. nearer France) .  I've not yet got round to looking at the optical and radio data together (too much to do).  I managed to get a pic on BBC East Midlands weather on Monday night, but I missed it.

Nice shot of the meteor. Which ISO/exposure combination were you using?

Similar to me. Does your camera do ISO 6400 or higher.
