Meteor camera observations

The camera system

Set of four cameras covers the eastern, southern, northern and western part of the sky (see the picture below). The first camera was implemented on November 14th, 2014 (Watec 902H 1/2) which was followed by the second one on March 7th, 2015 and the third one on April 19th, 2015 (both KPF 131 HR 1/3). With implementation of the fourth camera on May 9th, 2015 (KPF 131 HR 1/3) we covered the sky almost entirely. Data are captured by the program UFO Capture 2.24 and processed by UFO Analyser, UFO Orbit.
