Started the camera at 11.30pm. Packed up at 4.00am. Beautiful night in the backyard but where were the Leonids?  I saw five slow moving Taurids drop from the sky and three Leonids and one of the Leonids was very good indeed - going from Leo over Auriga and burning out in front of Orion - sadly just outside my cameras FOV.  480 x30 sec exposures and a meteor on only one frame!  Imaged with a Canon 600D DSLR - EOS 18-55mm lens at f=18mm. and F=4.5 all on a Star Adventurer Mount.
