Leonids

Posted by Nick James at 07:24 on 2011 Nov 18

Clear from dusk through dawn here but a bright Moon was a bit of a problem. I captured a couple of bright Leonids. One at 02:13:00 (MP4) (Windows Media) and the other at 03:02:09 (MP4) (Windows Media).I hope others were successful too.Nick.

Peter Meadows has pointed out my Leonid event times for last night are wrong. At the moment my software reports event times with respect to the start of the video and I have to manually input the video start time from a different log (something definitely to change). This morning I did this but transposed the time so all my events were reported with times 2m57s too early.The bright Leonid was actually at 02:15:57 UTC.Nick.
