    Hi guys. I'm using D5000.
    Is it possible to take video of the meteor shower using it?

    ^^ it's not like you can actually clearly see a well defined meteor moving across the sky. so videos won't work as they are make of many frames. one long exposure might reveal the meteors. (30 seconds longest on manual mode & as long as you hold down shutter on BULB mode)
    I refuse to List my camer@ equipment here.

    Do you think Pasir Ris beach spot is good? I remember its quite dark if on the beach?? Or Should go to Punggol End?

    I know, normally I'd suggest about 120 seconds. however I did a quick calculation and if you can get a fairly dark site (they do exist) and with it being a fairly high elevation (alt) it should be okay.

    No point in doing anything here, it's solid thick cloud for the next few days.

    Hmm. Sounds fun. Maybe I can try shooting from my window? Any particular direction we should watch for these cool showers? North? East? West? South? Uh. That's if I can wake up at 3am. Brrr.

    Eastern horizon from 12:40 am, around the constellation of Leo (that's why the name LEOnids). With the current cloud cover, I doubt there's going to be a spectacular display at all.

    East? Heheh. Guess I'll get a longer sleep then. Too lazy to go out and my window is facing west.
