Date/Time of photo2006-11-19 04.50 UT
Canon Digital Rebel XT on a tripod.
18-55 mm zoom lens at 18 mm, f/3.5. 10 second exposure at ISO 800
DescriptionI was very lucky that the clouds over Vallentuna Sweden went away just in time for the Leonid shower.
I looked out around 04.00 UT and saw a clear sky and took my car and went
away to a lake nearby.
I stood and wait for at last 15min without seeing any meteors, but then it
started around 04.30 UT!
Bright and beautiful meteors, not so many of them, so I choosed to point my
Canon DLSR on a tripod towards the constellation of Orion over the
lightpolluted skies of Stockholm. And after about 10s during an exposure I
saw this beautiful meteor turned into fragments in the middle of the cameras
A very nice morning both visually and photographic!
