MY FIRST METEOR SHOT!!




On 31st October I went to Devraj Farm House for comet hunting and sky observing. I carried my Panasonic DMC FS-15 Digital Camera. The camera has a particular mode called "Starry Sky" that allows us to give exposures from 15 secs to 60 secs to take starry sky image. During comet hunting I set exposure of 60 seconds and pointed the camera toward Aquila. After reaching home I processed the image in Picasa Image Viewer and brightened the image thorugh the software. It revealed a trail of meteor in the constellation Ophiuchus. This was my first shot of a meteor.
