For some time now I have been experimenting with a truck hubcap and SLR camera to take whole sky images. The poor man's fish-eye so to speak. The hubcap is used as a mirror to reflect the image towards a downward facing camera. Earlier post on this. I have successfully recorded aurora and meteors with it. It wasn't until I bought a digital camera with an intervalometer that the device came into its own. Sequences of several hours could be recorded automatically while I slept, and the images checked the next day.
I wrote an article on my adventures for the Scorpius newsletter of my astronomical society, MPAS, back in September. In it I included this cartoon, reflecting on the term fish-eye.
