Interesting Things: Waiting for meteors

I didn’t manage to see any Quadrantid meteors but at least did manage to get some good star shots with Susan’s new Canon camera.

M42 on Oct 24, 2009

It’s not a great shot but I’m still working my way through techniques that work with my combination of cameras and telescope.

I did manage to catch a meteor with the camera. I didn’t know it’d made an appearance until after I downloaded the picture. It’s on the left. Could it have been a late Gemenid?
