Re: The Quadrantid Meteor shower peaks 3/4 Jan

I finished going through all 840 photos covering six hours and that was the only noticeable meteor I captured, and it is a non-Quadrantids. There might have been some difficult to see meteors if I had PP all the files and used a magnifying glass, but it simply isn't worth all that effort! The keepers are the ones you can see without conducting a pixel level search. Oh well, one is way better than none, and I basically slept while the camera did the work, so certainly not a waste of time. I do believe that the Quadrantids are likely too dim for my Red Zone location, so I doubt I will attempt them again next year.
