Feb 18/19/20/21 Meteors
February 26, 2010
Meteor activity from last weekend followed the pattern we’ve seen for the past month or so. Rates are decent though not very high and there is little activity from any known showers.
After the storm on the night of Feb 21/22, my camera shifted its position somehow. As a result I need to recalibrate its pointing by talking a series of deep exposures and measuring the position of 50+ stars. Due to the bright evening Moon I haven’t been able to do this yet. When I do I’ll have stats for this week’s observing sessions.
