Meteors are our most active field. Our experience dates back to 1993 and 1994 Perseid outbursts and we have seen most major shower peaks up until the 2005 Perseids, including the meteor storms of Leonids in 2001 and 2002.

Currently our greatest interest are major shower, with special emphasis on the current Leonid outbursts. We also monitor minor showers and sporadic activity - in March 2000 we observed a small ZHR 10 Virginid burst and participated in the Xi Bootid observing campaign.

Presented here are our results since the Team's formation and some of the most impressive showers before. The best shower yet seen by the team is the Leonid 2001 outburst, followed by the Leonid 2002 outburst, followed by Leonids of 1998, the Leonids of 2000, Geminids 2004 and Geminids 1999.
