Details:
Just a small window of one hour with clear skies, was enough to see dozens of Geminids. From my observation place in the northern part of The Netherlands I saw at least 40 meteors in 60 minutes. And that was a period, sometimes interrupted by operating my camera. Finally I succeeded to catch even a few meteors with this recreative imaging. A Geminid with estimated magnitude +0, could be found as a quite weak example on the image. A much brighter one appeared on an image, token at 0026 UT. This one was not observed by me but it must have been around -4 to -5. After that hour of Geminids, the sky got obscured by clouds, finishing my observations.
