Many thanks for your reply and for the link to your excellent work. Yes, it’s good starting out to see results from monitoring a known variable star over a short period of time as it gives one a chance to confirm results with published data. An added confidence to then explore more challenging objects.
I won’t be able to make it to the meteor section meeting this time unfortunately but I hope everyone attending has a fantastic time indeed.
Best wishes and clear skies
