Speaking of such, it turns out that Sky & Telescope ( ) has put out an observer's guide on such.  Probably,
aside from general technical information, the "fleeting celestial events"
part would be of most SeeSat relevance.

It's $25US plus S&H.  I'll probably order it, but has anyone here read it?
If so, any comments and/or recommendations?

From the blurb at the site:

  Video Astronomy [ISBN: 0933346964]
  December 2000
  Steve Massey, Thomas A. Dobbins, and Eric J. Douglass
    At last, a complete guide to capturing images of the night sky on video!
  authors, all experienced backyard skygazers and astronomical imagers,
  video technology past and present and demonstrate its many applications to
  astronomy. They explain how to use ordinary camcorders, "Web cams," and
  digital video cameras alone or coupled to telescopes to record images of
  Moon and planets, deep-sky objects, and fleeting celestial events such as
  showers, occultations, and eclipses. This newest entry in the Sky &
  Observer's Guides series is lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and
color photos
  and diagrams.
