Bright flashes in Taurus!

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

After my abortive 5-hour attempt to see some Taurids (http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/256472-where-are-the-taurids/ ), here's a couple of images of the session from my Norfolk garden.

Firstly, a single 30 second frame, Canon 700d, Samyang 8mm, ISO 1600. There are a few big flashes in the region of Taurus, but I think they might be something else!

And here's the whole timelapse. Around 4 hours of 30-second exposures:

Did better than me, 2.5 hours, no fireworks, four planes. :)

Interesting to see an image from the Samyang 8mm thanks, it's on my wishlist.

It's not bad, but with the expected distortion at the edges. Massive field of view.

Useful tip: I use a battery-powered footwarmer to keep the dew off. Only £14 for a pair! Essential with the big bulbous glass at the front.

Nice bit of improvisation there. :) I may give this a go, I have a dew band and controller but often run two mounts and cameras at once, so this could be handy. Or I could try a chemical heat pack in a sock.
