Post geminids lens choice?
I am thinking of shooting a timelapse of the geminids tomorrow night. Anyone shot them before?

I don't have any motorized head, so the position will move on me throughout the night... I have a 7d 7d and a 50 mm 1.4 or an 18-55 is... The 50 is a better and lens but I'm not sure it is wide enough.

I'm planning to do continuous 30 second exposures.

Use the widest field possible for geminids. They come in fast, so at 30 second exposures, they will end up being a streak on one (or two) exposures max. Too fast for time lapse IMO...if anything, slow motion would be better.

Good luck
