Abstract

We present our experience and initial results of single-station observation using the new fish-eye TV system, as well as double station TV observation of the Geminids 2006 shower. The fixed fish-eye TV system was developed for monitoring meteor activity throughout the year. We discuss the astrometric precision of our observations using the UFOAnalyser software.
