meteorshower shooting with GoPro hero3+

Recommended Posts

Hello all, there's a meteorshower tonight and I wanted to shoot it with my new GoPro hero3+ witch I just bought (and not really sure how to use...)

Any tips or advice would be great.

Thanks in advance ??

If you live near me; suggest stick it on a cycle helmet and pedal about 200 miles to find a break in the clouds. Why do all the best sky sights coincide with poor weather and total cloud cover? Aaarrrggghhhh!

It's looking like the lucky people of Southampton are the only ones who'll have a clear sky tonight. Thinking of taking a drive down there

Set it to night lapse, 30 sec continuous shots.... 12MP Wide and stick it in the middle of a garden or field away from direct lights...  however, depending how dark it is you should set the ISO to either 200 or 400... I've done it with my Hero 4 before and will again later if the clouds go away!! :-(

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

      I haven't posted for way too long but while I'm waiting for my new obsy to get built I decided to see what I can do with my new GoPro HERO4 Black that I've just purchased.
      It's rainy season over here in Philippines sadly so clouded out quite a lot but my 1st impressions have been very promising with this new cam. Once the season changes I'm certain there's some great footage to capture here.
      I'm still unsure of what settings I need to use to get the best results and I'm also trying different locations to see what works best, looking for darker skies (avoiding neighbours night lights!) etc...
      If there are any other GoPro users that can give me any hints/advice it would be greatly appreciated, especially with processing the raw data. At the moment I'm just processing through the free GoPro Studio software.
      Thanks for taking a look

      I've created a small compilation of videos of the Night Sky from my small back garden,
      Living in a small town with light pollution it's quite surprising on what you can see and even more surprising on how much the GoPro will pick up.
      I hope you like the video.
