Hi Bill,

I really like your composite diagrams, showing the spread of colours along the range of wavelengths and the plot of their intensity levels. An excellent way to illustrate a meteor spectrum.

I had clear skies on Jan 3/4 and in spite of the almost Full Moon my Leeds_NW and Leeds_SE cameras recorded a total of 192 meteors, of which 103 were Quadrantids, with a mean mag of around 1.5.

I’m hopeful that we’ll obtain some multi-station data when you can operate a south-facing camera during Moonless nights.

Clear skies,
