I just thought I'd mention that the Geminids will be peaking this weekend in case some of you want to get some meteor shots. Naturally the days surrounding the peak should also be active. I was out looking (actually *trying* to get a shot of Andromeda galaxy) last night and saw a nice one through some tree limbs!!...wished I'd been on the other side of that tree!!!
The meteors will be radiating outward from Gemini and the peak time will be around 2am local time both Friday and Saturday nights (here in the USA). A gibbous moon will compete until very early morning drowning out the more faint meteors...the moon will be setting around 4am local. Wear a jacket.<grin>
Here's a link to an article regarding the Geminids...
Best wishes for clear skies,
