Re: (meteorobs)addition: Video/Minor Shower Radiants



 In addition to my mail;

The newest issue of WGN (Journ. IMO)  that we just found in our postbox has
a paper by Marc de Lignie in which he describes some of the  video results
I mentioned,.a.o. the Leo minorids.

I think part of the 'disagreement'  between thye more pessimistic Sirko and
more optimistic me is in that Sirko employs monostation records he analyses
by means of 'Radiant' software, while we use multi-station  triangulation
methods which give far more accurate results (1 meteor already gives an
accurate radiant, while you need several with Sirko's method).
