    I just got my camera a few days before the Perseids and I hadn't quite figured it all out :dunno: I also now have it working with Canon's time capture so I'm going to use that :cool:

    For that meteor shower this summer I tried to shoot it from the beach.... Yeah, I got eaten alive by mosquitoes in 5 seconds (plus, it was cloudy).

    The 18th is going to be at the end of a long weekend for me. I doubt I'll feel like shooting anything (although I will have the 200 1.8 which is an excellent astrophotography lens so I may have to fart with it anyway).

    Isn't it the night of the 17th, morning of the 18th? According to my calendar, that's Sunday morning.

    I'm pretty sure it's the night of the 18th but I could be wrong. I thought it started at 11pm or something

    I was incorrect :doh: This is what it says:

    The shower peaks on the night of November 17/18, with the best viewing from late evening on the 17th through the early morning hours of the 18th.

    Looks like it's Saturday night instead of Sunday night :cool: Glad someone said something :rofl:
