    Totally wrong on the video angle Krishna. Video has been the weapon of choice for nearly 20 years for the serious meteorite counters. They stick a single stage image intensifier (1st or second generation unit usually) after the lens and it will catch the entire trail and faint ones you can't see with the unaided eye

    Hi Ian!

    Welcome back after a long break!

    Thanks for your insight with your experience on the field.
    Mind if i ask for more pointers?

    Say with my gear : loan 7D with 85mm prime.
    Would you think it is good for me to attempt a video on the shower (put aside the weather condition)?

    I have with me a 5D MarkII with 24-70 as well. Most likely i will attempt to shoot video on just one of them (putting 7D as first choice due to cropped factor) since i have only one tripod with me now.

    Is there any other factor i should consider?

    Ending off my post with appreciation to your help and advice.

    Meantime, take good care of self and again... welcome back! ^^

    hmm so we need a wide angle lens... a slow exposure time.... somewhat high iso.... and a large or small aperture?

    Should be large since we need all the light that we can see to hit on the sensor.
    Closing it down to smaller aperture might helps in getting a sharper image but not capturing all the lights that are available.

    sembawang is still cloudy on the west.
    anyway the shower will happen on the NW right just to confirm?
