  1. hi sir
    is it possible ma capture using dslr ang event this month of may yung “Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower”?

    tanong ko rin poh what time ang best and location ng shower..

    thanks

    • Yes,pwede ma-capture with a DSLR. Iwan mo lang na nakatutok sa sky yung camera, exposing for 30 seconds using a wide-angle lens, high ISO, wide aperture. Parang nag-iimage ka lang ng Milky Way.

      Peak ng shower first week ng May, visible anywhere in the world.

      Good luck!
