Default Leonid Meteor Shower Tips

Hey Everyone

I am getting ready to shoot my first meteor shower tonight and was wondering if anyone had any tips? Plan is to us my Canon 50D with the 10-22mm at 10mm. I figure 15 second exposure, f/3.5 and ISO 600?? Let me know if I am thinking right or if you have any suggestions or tips!

that would probably be a pretty good starting point. u may have to go up to iso 800 or 1600 possibly.

you may want to try a few different exposure lengths, 15s, 30s, 1m. and then just keep shooting until you fill up your card(s) trying to get "lucky"!

stay as far away from any light sources as you can.
