Are meteor counts of observers with same LM, unobstructed view, moon and
date/time statistically constant?
Well, of course a meteor is less diffuse than a nebula and thus meteor
observing looks more like star observing than deep sky observing. But my
question is: Is faint haze so troublesome for deep sky objects affecting
meteor counts ? (faint meteors of course).
clear skies, Yann.
