    Thanks for your info.
    New moon falling on November 16, dark skies guaranteed, so 2009 Leonid display is definitely worth checking out.

    The maximum ZHR every year of any meteor showers is probably the Perseids (a ZHR of anywhere between 100 to 120) BUT every now and then the Leonids actually produces a METEOR STORM with a peak ZHR of anywhere between 500 to 1000 sometime in the middle of november. Go figure.

    Zenithal Hourly Rate (ZHR) to put it in short, a theoretical number of meteors an observer is expected to see in a hour when viewed directly above a particular position on a clear, cloudless and dark night.

    The best photographer is one who is inspired by the innate nature of his subjects.
