LEONIDS 2011 REPORT

The members of Kutch Amateur Astronomers' Club went to Valakhavas Lake near Shiv Paras Temple to watch Leonids. The Last Quarter Moon was very bright that washed most of the joy of watching the Leonids but we chose to take some shots of the night sky during this event. We spent most of the time in campfire and making the time lapse movie of the rising moon. We noted just 4 meteors one of which was successfully captured in the camera!

A Leonid was captured during  25s shutter speed
