PHOTOGRAPHIC RESULTS

Photographic observations were carried out by four observers - CESAL, KACJA, STRNI, and HRIST. The exposures were done with an all-sky camera and an array of lenses with focal lengths from 20 to 58 mm. The negatives had more than 50 Leonid trails. 48 of the trails were recorded good enough to make coordinate measurements from photographs.

Leonid radiant position
The Leonid radiant was calculated using 44 of the measured trains with the RADIANT software.
It is at a = 153.4 d = +21.3 (l = 236).

The Leonid radiant position derived from 44 photographic meteor trains.
