 Post subject: Perseid meteor catcher
PostPosted: Fri Aug 10, 2012 4:37 pm 
I got all creative yesterday and made a simple mount to be able to use my canon and webcam at the same time to maximise my chances of catching a couple of meteors in this weekends peak of the perseids. I tried it out last night and got good results, even captured a couple, but the sky was still quite light and they are very faint. Going to try again this evening and play about with different settings to get ready for the peak tomorrow evening ...... cloud permitting !!
