Eta Aquarid - Long weekend Graves session.

Recommended Posts

After a rather long equipment "downtime" on my Graves setup, I got the new 2m Moxon ariel up and talking to SDR#. The software then does it's stuff and is left running on the laptop overnight until I get up and remember to switch things off.  A screen grabber is set up to automatically catch the screen display every 20 seconds, and I then wade through the grabs with the good old Mk 1 eyeballs to count up the meteor "pings".  My counts and events line graph are below for the Eta Aquarid maximum and of course, the other minor showers and sporadics around.

Anyone else get something similar?
