Video meteor observing article in Astronomy Now

There’s an excellent and highly readable article on meteor video observing in the current (May) AN, by BAA member William Stewart - William has had several papers on this topic in recent JBAAs. The title is “From Deck-chairs to Desktops”. For those of you thinking of embarking on this fascinating activity, where real science can be done, this is an excellent place to start. The article lays out the sort of equipment you will need and the costs, as well as highlighting some of the results. It’s also worth visiting the NEMETODE (“Network for Meteor Triangulation and Orbit Determination”) website at: http://www.nemetode.org/

Go well!
