Eta Aquarids by CapturingTheNight Eta Aquarids by CapturingTheNight

2013 Eta Aquarids meteor shower. The radiant for this meteor shower was rising in the north east in the early hours but after observing all the sections of sky the longer and brighter meteors seemed to be predominately in the opposite direction, but if you traced their paths back through the sky most were coming from the radiant point. The meteors that I observed near the radiant were all very short lived and faint.
I had my camera shooting continuous frames. This picture is compiled from one base frame for the landscape, sky and the meteor to the left of the tree. I then went through the other frames with this composition and selected the ones with meteors and masked them on top of the base image. Thin, high level cloud has bloated some of the stars and made them appear much larger and brighter than normal (particularly the star on the left).

Did anyone else go meteor hunting?

Depends on the equipment used:  www.capturingthenight.com/astr… , what I want to achieve and what light is present in the scene. At night, anywhere from a second to several hours for one image.
