Another meteor camera, and...

I now have a second meteor camera installed so I can cover a bit more sky. I need to adjust the first one a bit so that the two cameras don't overlap too much. At the moment about a third of the field is overlap, so sometimes I catch the same meteor on both cameras, like this one:


I also put up one of the same high-sensitivity cameras which hasn't had its IR filter removed. It is watching the northern horizon mostly for the sake of the weather, and runs in colour mode all the time rather than monochrome mode which the meteor cameras use. I hope it might catch some noctilucent clouds, and maybe even get pretty colour views of any aurora that might happen to be visible once the skies get darker again.
