Simple All-Sky meteor DSLR camera set-up.

Equipment is Nikon full frame D810 with extra battery grip, an interval timer to delay start until suitable time and time exposures, a Sigma 8 mm fish eye lens. Photo settings F4, 15 seconds, ISO 2500. All mounted on a steady tripod. Large cards are needed for 1000+ photos all taken RAW plus JPEG. The cards do not have to be fast, large cheap cards work fine since it is an image every 15 seconds. This set up will last all night long providing at least 9 hours of continuous photography of the night sky. Photoshop is used to adjust the temp and other parameters.
