Leonid shower 18-nov-01.


The pictures above are enlarged from the original ones. If you click on them you will se the right sized pictures.

I had a great show between 2:00 and 4:00 UT. I could see perhaps 4-5 Leonids per minute in the limited field of the sky that I have from my backyard. (30-40% of the sky).

All the above pictures were shot with an Olympus C2040Z digital camera with a 0.6 wide-angle converter. The corresponding focal length of a 35 mm camera is 24 mm. The setting of the camera was 16 seconds and 400 ASA at an aperture of 1.8.
