    Hi All!
    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!

     

    A Perseid!

    Catching Perseids! Night of Aug 12th and 13th 2014!

     

    Another Perseid!

    Catching Persids! Night of Aug 12th and 13th 2014

     

    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.

    Startrails of Perseid Meteor Shower Watch

    Startrails of the night of the 12-13th August, when I left my camera in the patio to catch some Perseids. 455 stacked images.

     

    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??

    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!
