Saw several nice bright meteors but only caught one with camera and unfortunately it was through trees on the bottom of my picture. Still a nice show. The first picture shows the fireball with the other nice meteors I got during the morning.

My first Perseid of the season and what a nice one it was too. This is a crop from the original wideangle frame in which the meteor trail was close to the edge. The trail appears slightly curved due to edge distortion in the lens.

Last night I captured several Perseid meteors with my night vision video camera.

There was a big storm to the east of our dark sky site and as I was trying to get some lightning shots a nice Perseid shot across the sky. It really made for a nice image.

I was trying to capture 20 shots of Pleiades (M45) for later combine and stacking. 3 images failed because of poor tracking of my mount. One of those had a Perseid flying by, bigger than my FOV.
