The year 1982 in words and pictures.
Besides the successful Perseid campaign this year, we had only moderate weather conditions. The maximum nights 11/12 and 12/13 August were totally clear resp. partly cloudy. The best photograpic catch was a -4 Perseide on August 11, 1982 at 22:02 UT. The night 12/13 august we saw a blueish -10 Perseid with a persistent train of 40 seconds! The landscape around the tower lit up in a bluish light. I operated the cameras again this year, so again little data of the Perseids from me.
This year I sold the Lubitel T -22 camera's to Hans Betlem and from then on we used only second-hand SLR camera like the Praktica STL 2, Pentors and Russian Zenit B's. The Zenit B's were equipped with the surprisingly sharp Helios 58 mm F 2.0 lenses.


Picture 1: a nice -4 magnitude Perseid captured on August 11, 1982 at 22:02 UT.
