Anyone up to trying to capture some meteor images ? Tonight is the Giminids and they're say projections up to 120/hr . Now I know there has not been a good one especially for northern hemisphere but tonight sounds like it could be a good one . Starts at sunset so get an early start and if you get any post them here if possible ! I might even give it a try myself if I see any shooting across the sky . Look forward to seeing some new fresh images !!

I'm sure it'll be great, since we're going to be clouded out, here. Sigh...

I don't do a lot of astro or night sky stuff but I am going to give it a go. Cloudy here now so at the moment I am not optomistic.:cry:

Did a test last night with my new 6D II (really need a wide angle) and my Oly E-m1 using Live Comp.

I'm heading out tonight to try and capture them. I will post if I get any good ones. Either way looking forward to clear skies in my area and no moon until about 3:30 AM.

Just got back from Big Cypress National Preserve. What a killer light show!

Haven’t looked at my shots yet, but am expecting at least a few to have more than one meteor streaking through the frame.

This is grossly over processed as I was having some fun this morning, but this capture caught 3 meteors

Best meteor shower I've ever witnessed....or captured. Caught thre in one frame and two in another. Space.com even featured one on their site. What a night it was. https://www.space.com ...7-thrills-stargazers.html (external link)
