i have a few bits and pieces of space stuff i have collected over the years. I have never owned a meteor though and i thought it might be nice to start a little collection
has anybody on here got a collection and if so could you give some advice please
looking on ebay there are lots but i really dont want to buy a piece of african quarry or something from someones back yard!
i realise there are many types and various areas of the world that produce but how can a novice tell that they are genuine and are there reliable/ reputable dealers or sources available?
My first attempt at imaging a meteor and quite chuffed with the result. Broken cloud up until around 0030 then total cloud cover. Visually I spotted 9.
Out of 110 frames this is the only meteor I captured and pity about those damn clouds covering Orion!
Nikon D5100, Samgyang 14mm on a Star Adventurer, 40secs at f4, ISO800
Has anyone been paying attention to the Orionids? How are they shaping up? I am going out for a nice long observing session tonight, conditions are great and I am heading to a dark site. I talked my girlfriend into coming along to watch meteors in between telescope objects. I was just curious if there has been much of a show, numbers-wise?
