Enjoy.

Perseid Meteors

Posted in Astrophotography, interval exposure, Long exposures, Sony A7III, Wide Angle on August 14, 2020 by budbranch

Recent moonless nights have favored long meteor-hunting sessions, and this month it coincides with the Perseids.  Famous meteor showers get a lot of press and draw our attention, but meteors happen EVERY night.  Mark your calendar for all moonless nights!

 

These are all 30-second exposures f/2.8 at ISO 6400 shot off a fixed tripod.

Looking for Comet SWAN, but it was lost in the glare of sunrise.  Had another camera shooting north 30 sec exposures.  This is a composite of 30 frames.

The Lyrid Meteor Shower

Posted in 5DMII, Astrophotography, Long exposures, Wide Angle on April 22, 2018 by budbranch

IMG_6221-2This meteor flashed through around 2AM this morning.  While it appears to be “in” the Milky Way, it is well to remember that the meteor is very close to Earth, actually burning up IN our atmosphere, while the Milky Way is (almost) unimaginably distant.

For extra credit:  why do we see more meteors AFTER midnight, than before?
