The year 1988 in images and words
As written, after the highly successful years 1984, 1985 and 1986 I did not observing meteors in 1987. During mid 1988 I decided to start again with the observations of meteors. Two Canon T70 camera 's were cleaned (...) and set up on a balcony of my apartment. During the night on 14/15 August 1988 I also observed the Perseids visual. It was my first visual observation since 7/8 November 1986.
Most striking observation of 1988 were the Taurids. Three clear nights in a row resulted in a remarkable number of Tauride, including quite a few bright ones such as in 1981. This year and the following years until 1996 I used a Canon T70 with a Sigma 2.8/16 mm lens for a automatic all sky station. Between 1994 and 1996 I used an original Canon FD 2.8/15 mm fish-eye. Station code : EN-98 (EN stands for European Network).
