This video, at an effective 15 frames per second, presents a diverse range of 1,000+ meteors (plus a lightning sprite) selected from 372 nights of imaging.
It is organised by local sidereal time and therefore also displays all of the northern night sky constellations as seen over a full 12 month period.
All frames are processed identically to show the dramatically varying sky conditions in colour, brightness and seeing conditions.
Sony A7 III with Sigma 14mm F1.8 DF HSM lens shooting across 372 nights, 20sec at f/1.8, ISO 800
570,518 discrete images manually reviewed twice with 2,686 images with meteors identified.
All individual frames processed identically in Adobe Lightroom Classic.
Recalculation of time to a consistent epoch for all images due to progressive camera time drift recorded on images
Conversion of recalculated date and time to UTC and calculation of local sidereal time for all images
Sorting of all frames by local sidereal time and manual selection of frames to remove excessive brightness changes (eg frames with excessive moon light, etc).
Polynomial transform of approximately 20% of images in Imagemagick to offset minor inadvertent mount movement that occurred during maintenance that caused alignment issues when sorted by local sidereal time.
Render and editing via Adobe Lightroom Classic, LRTimelapse, Final Cut Pro
