Hi Carverofchoice! (I hope Prime Rib is what you choose to carve … if so, I’ll be over after the meteor shower, which is supposed to peak tonight.)
I live on the edge of a new subdivision, out in the country. Houses on one side, farm land and empty fields on the rest. So yes, I have little light pollution, including any distance city lights.
Last night, my wife had the idea to turn off all of our inside and outside lights at sunset … and go to bed early. (I’m hoping she lets me follow this routine until Christmas , maybe longer.)
So I placed the V3 (which is inside/outside/plug into electricity) on its back on a table on our rear deck. I also placed a couple of WCOs … which got absolutely nothing.
On the V3, I turned Night Vision Mode “ON” … but turned the Night Vision IR Lights “Off.” I had an SD card in the V3, set to “continuous local recording.”
I still haven’t had the time to scroll through the 12 hours of continuous recording on the SD card to see what else I caught. But I’m putting in a fresh SD card for tonight (11/16 into 11/17), which is supposed to be the peak of the Leonid Meteor Shower.
I’m hoping for another clear night. Glad everyone is enjoying the pix. I’ll post more if I think they are better.
