I never have those functions turned on in the first place, the most likely scenario was the remote shutter. It's a bit fiddly with where it wants to work in the jack so it could of shifted when I let go of it and stopped altogether. Although I thought I was positive that I heard it snapping away in the background, maybe not.

Blumming annoying isn't it. Hope it goes better later.

Was out 12.00 till 2.30 last night...crystal clear skies but surprisingly few meteors of reasonably bright magnitude, many faint mag 4-5 looking overhead and towards the south but very few fireballs so far, seen more in past years this close to maximum even with partial moonlight ...didn't even set up the camera which was in the car next to me! :shocked:

Let's hope things pick up tonight ...maybe going to be a late peak this year? :huh:

Good luck and clear skies everyone!

This is looking great for tonight! I have the day off work tomorrow as well so it could not have been better timing. Just need a relatively dark site near Harrow, NW London ....

Had a rain shower a couple of hours ago followed by cloud, here's hoping,

Crystal clear in deepest Gloucestershire. Getting a couple of hours in and alarm set for 1.30am. Superb ISS pass about 15 minutes ago. One of the best I've seen!

About 10 so far, one good one and only glanced the best of 'em. Looking forward to waking the missus a bit later if it's still clear and we can play that fun old game of one saying "WOW!!" while the other misses it :grin:

So far 2, I'm stuck at work :BangHead: My group of trainees are probably thinking I'm nuts - running into other dark office every 5mins or so and peeking out of the window :lol:

Have been outside myself tonight for a while. It is a lovely clear evening in Halifax and luckily I am blessed with a great east facing back garden, so I have managed to see quite a few meteors tonight. Next door but one were outside watching the shower themselves. Excellent.....

Saw the ISS pass over around 21:30hrs, so figure it's due for a repeat about now.

My ISS Spotter app shows it just passing Montreal now but then hits Europe near Bilbao might be a bit to far south to see it

I managed 15 in about 1hr 30 mins. 3 were exceptional with 1 of those being a 'fizzler'. Not too bad really but for me not as good as previous years.
