(meteorobs) Leonids - Mag estimation from non-intensified video stream
Is there a way to estimate magnitude of Leonids as captured by
non-intensified video stream. Is the normal practice of using the
background star as reference work. Which part of the meteor do you take as
reference - the terminal burst ( if there is one)? As my ccd had enhanced
IR-sensitivity and was wondering whether this will give error biased
estimation ( compare with naked eye). What do you do with very bright
terminal flash which appear to me over-saturate the ccd.
Looking forward to you expert input.
