I went out last night to look for Geminid meteors.  I took my camera with me on the hope of taking some shots.  I started the process by going to Jessops to get something that would allow me to use a long exposure of more than 30 seconds.  Here lies my first mistake – Jessops have nothing in stock.  Do’h.

 We went out at about 12:30 but it was unbelievably cold.  Ruth was driving and getting cold so we didn’t stay long and didn’t see anything.  The camera may have done when I have a look after work. 

Apparantly the best time for viewing is around dawn where up to 12 “shooting stars” and hour are visible.  I may try again tonight but from past experience, the second night of anything, once you know what you are doing, it is always foggy!
