Test run on Sunday night with the Wat-910HX and 6mm lens produced a small crop of meteoroids. The sky started off reasonably clear, but looking at the hundreds of files this morning it appears to have clouded over and rained during the night causing chaos with UFO Captures. After deleting virtually all the clips I was left with 11 captures that I could analyse. Of these, 10 were sporadics of varying magnitude and 1 meteor was classed as a 'Hyd'. ( not familiar with that name, but I will learn these in time.)
Of the 10 sporadics, this was the brightest at -2.8.
I will post the groundmap showing the area of capture if I can reduce it in size for posting here. It may have been caught by someone East of my location. If so, could they verify my analysis so that I can see if I am doing this right.
Hi Allan, Nice capture, I see you have the "grid" effect on you composite meteor image. This seems to be a processing/compression issue between the VGA frame (640 x 480) and PAL video output. If you're up for an experiment, set the frame size in UFO to 720 X 576. Bear in mind, though, it puts a proportionately higher loading on the processor. Try that for a night, it should give you a smooth frame. (I have had only one occasion where this didn't work. I'm sure that was related to the USB video capture unit I was using.) If it doesn't work you can always reload the setting file! cheers, Bill.
