Have you been lucky spotting any shooting stars?
I’m thrilled as I caught some with my camera, alas I did not manage to see any as the last few nights were cloudy until after 1-2am. My camera was willing to stay up after 2am, but I had to go to bed!
Here are some of my shots!
I stacked all the images I took that night to produce some startrails – you should be able to see perhaps 6 Perseids as well as a couple of satellites and the ISS.
Finally, I also created a timelapse with the photos I took! I hope you enjoy it 🙂
Thanks Sumitra, great images. I’ve already posted my claim on another thread, but here it is again!
I’d not seen your original thread, sorry!!
Wow!! That’s a long one, Mike! Puts my babies to shame! 😉 I’m glad it was a successful night in Cudham, I was there in thoughts, and was sad I couldn’t make it!
I took a risk by pointing one of my cameras to the south-east, well away from the radiant. That way, though I had less chance of picking up a Perseid, any that I did pick up would most likely have a long trail.
Thanks for this insight, Mike!
From my patio, I was quite limited in where I could point my camera to, with the Moon on one side, city centre light pollution on the other and also the wall of my house! I am lucky that my patio is facing away from the city centre though!
But, importantly, did you catch it with your own eyes too??
did you catch it with your own eyes too?
I saw 6 or 7 meteors during the evening… think I may have seen the one that I captured on camera, but not certain!
Great image captures, Sumitra! Pity you didnt catch any with your eyes. I saw 5 myself, my first ever bundle catch 🙂 Its great to share the “oohs” and “did you see that one” with others.

Thanks Tej! Shame I couldn’t make it to Cudham! It looks like it was fun!
I did lots of Oohs virtually though 😉
Btw, here is a composite image I have just completed!
