    A star trail I took last night looking north, from Harlech, North Wales.

    Canon 6D, 14mm lens, f/2.6, ISO 3200, 30 second subs, 2 second gaps, between 23:08 to 04:56. Stacked with free software, Startrails.de

    On one of the subs there was a bright meteor. After checking the time on the DSLR (and correcting as the camera was two minutes fast and on British Summer Time), I submitted the sub to the NEMETODE network to see if anyone captured the event. Sure enough at least two have captured the meteor on video, and initial analysis shows it was a meteor over Galloway, and had a bright terminal flash. It’s good to combine the widefield observation with video meteor detection.

    Wow, spectacular star trails James. I get the impression of looking down a tunnel of stars!

    Best wishes,

    Andy
