a few hours clear sky and I wasn't prepared lol. No heater straps, no warm clothes and 0c but in 3 hours, between 0100 and 0400, I saw 13 meteors and out the corner of my eye a few more, and quickly checking the images I caught one, left of the frame lol. This is looking South over Llyn Celyn near Bala in N. Wales

Beautiful! We had no such view in SE last night. Was just lucky there was a 30 minute break in cloud around Jupiter to have another look. This is the weekend for Orionids too, and I really want to have a look.

I saw just the one during an hour's observing session last night before the fog rolled in, but it was pretty spectacular: a relatively large / fireball appearance with a slight flare, quite slow moving, was visible for a good 3 or 4 seconds before disappearing in a flash. :)

Very nice Kev!

I've was up Sunday 10/21 since 4:30 am imaging with my DSLR, swapped batteries (6:10am).

Saw a few really nice ones with my eye that fortunately the camera was also on and pointed at....or so I thought

Once sunrise came I took the gear in, processed the 100's of images, and found 1 to post.

Also woke up my wife and boys, then took them outside to look "up" - on a chair - with them.

Seems I forget the eyes field of view is so much more than even a 15mm lens, and then the morning dew came and fogged my lens....

I also took a few shots last night... 404 to be exact, between 11:30pm and 1:00am, of the region that spans the top of Orion, Perseus, Taurus, Pleiades, Auriga & Gemini, and didn't snag a single one! Granted, I was in a semi-LP'd area, but I still can't believe how inactive it was. I think I saw one out the corner of my eye, away over at Cetus, and miles away from my camera's FOV. Typical. :)

      Short .gif from a .ser video, captured last night (12th) with my ASI385MC and the supplied all-sky-lens.
      We had a lovely clear night last night. The best we've had in ages. The battery died on my old laptop - probably due to the sub zero temperature - so only managed a few 5 minute videos. I saw lots more before I decided to set up the camera. 
      Tonight; peak; is completely clouded out! Surprise, surprise!!

       
      I also had my Mother-in-laws dog as a stargazing companion/hot water bottle.  Excuse the finger in the shot, my wife is a bit of a technophobe!

      Hi
      Some of you may be aware of the Radio Meteor Detection collaboration Project which is a group of contributors who submit their monthly log files after which do a number of things with the data see here for more info: https://radiometeordetection.org/about
      Our latest exciting project is to see if we can successfully match Radio and Video events to aid our understanding of meteor phenomena, so we are now starting to Map Radio Meteor Altitudes for GRAVES.
      The attached PDF gives a full description of this project
      The project brief and maps can be found here: https://radiometeordetection.org
      If you want any more information or feel you can help in any way, please do get in touch
      Kind Regards
      John Berman

      From a site near Shrewsbury a very bright meteor was seen at 21:59 (30/07/2020) which left a smoke trail still visible after 35 minutes. It covered two thirds of the visible sky and its track was in the western horizon .

      We carefully monitor the displacement of the radiant. It looks like a meteor shower!
