Perseid fireball and dancing trail
Copyright: Petr Horálek

I tried to make some timelapse of the Perseid's night and Milky way above Šumava (nearby Pancíř). When I saw this fireball, I was very sad, because I didn't know, if the wide-angle camera (Canon 550D, Samyang 8 mm, F5.6, ISO 1600, 30 s) cought this amazing and maybe the brightest fireball of the Perseid 2012. But I had another camera (Canon 450D, Tamron 17-50 mm, F2.8, 20 s, ISO 1600) so made some shots of the "dancing" disappearing trail. I was so surprised when I found out the first camera cought the fireball, so with all the "story" of fireball and it's trail I decided to make this mosaic.

Saturday Night (Meteor) Fever

Post by T. Credner » Fri Aug 17, 2012 2:40 pm

Saturday Night was a Meteor fever. We went out for a meteor camp on the Swabian Alb in southern Germany. Seven exposures from one and a half hour were combined. The Dobson telescope was used for observing some deep sky objects by astronomy students.
