Meteor Photography

At last Wednesday’s meeting I showed a meteor shower time lapse film I’d made on an iPhone.  If you’re interested the app required to make similar videos, and for just about any astronomy-related iPhone purpose, is NightCap Camera.  I was using version 9.0 which has the improved ‘meteor mode’.

Note this app was previously called NightCap Pro and, for a very short time, Night Camera (I think).

It’s currently £1.99 but there is no free ‘lite’ version any more.

And remember there are more meteor showers coming up this year, almost all on nights when the moon won’t interfere too much!  The Orionids, Leonids and Gemenids; in October, November and December respectively.
