Details:
I setup a video camera facing South for the second part of the night. I could only frame Orion constellation with the available objective, but advantage, then magnification was good... On the morning I studied the 720 000 frame AVI with Starmax (co-developed with Gilbert Grillot and myself) and got this image ! Could not believe it :) Was not a plane, nor a satellite nor an Iridium ... I must had some incredible luck to get such a Geminid (I checked with Stellarium) !! I had then the time to make different AVIs from realtime to slow motion. Please goto my site ( http://sweiller.free.fr/AstroMovies/Meteorshowers.htm ) for download links (XVID) .
