Did anyone see any meteors last night and take any pictures?  If so what time did you see them? I was up from 5-5:30 a.m but didn't see anything. Darn!

Hi Casey and others:
 
One of the biggest things about photographing meteor showers is finding a place as dark as possible, away from city lights. St. Bernard has some pretty good spots, and the Bonnet Carre Spillway isn't too bad either. Ambient light will "drown out" the faint meteors and make photography near impossible. Many astronomical photographers also go to the expense of getting a rig for the camera which will synchronize it with the Earth's rotation. While it will make some pretty interesting images, it is much more important for photographing stars than meteors. But the darkness is the most important thing ... and using time lapse will likely get some interesting images.
