My equipments for shooting the shooting stars
(The gamma of MS Windows is invalid. So correct the gamma of your PC
same as Mac, SUN, SGI.)

tennis wrist band. Of course, don't forget to check the pint(infinity)
and the iris.

- camera(Vixen VX-2,a cheap PENTAX K-mount compatible)
- lens(SIGMA 28mmF1.8II ASPHERICAL)
- (blue)tennis wrist band

I shoot them by ISO800 film, iris F2.8, exposure 10-30 minutes.
