Astronomer, Reinvented

Recommended Posts

It was the time of year when any self-respecting astronomer and also those like me, who gave that up decades ago, turns their attention to meteors. it was less than 100 hours to the peak of the Perseid shower. I aimed my camera with Cassiopeia in the centre of the field of view and hoped. I used my normal settings of 18mm focal length, ISO 6400 and 6 seconds exposure.


I thought I had captured a meteor in the first 91 photos but subsequent ones showed that it was something slower-moving, probably a satellite. I processed 10 frames, using Sequator, GraXpert and GIMP to show Cassiopeia.
