Fireball (4K footage) from 29 September
4

I almost messed it up by forgetting to turn on the anti-dew heater after setting up, but thankfully noticed the dew forming and made the decision to give the lens a wipe (something I usually try to avoid) rather than waiting for the heat to evaporate the dew which probably would not have worked in time. Indeed, the fireball appeared about 15 mins after I wiped the lens, and 6 mins before I stopped the camera/packed up for the night, at 03:54:00 UT.

I did not visually observe the fireball (IMO event: 6091-2021 ) but from the footage I'd estimate it to be around -9 to -10 magnitude.

Equipment/settings: Sony a7SII + Sigma Art 20/1.4 @ f1.4 - 1/30s, ISO 64000, 30 FPS - Ninja V recorder/monitor recording in 4K pro-res, Slog2 (vivid setting set on camera).
