Perseid through Cygnus.
130 images taken got one Perseid, astrophotography you gotta love it. Image 30secs Canon 1000D stock lens (18-55) at 18.
Slightly out of focus sorry.
thanks for looking.
Oh dear that looks really gaudy on here, green stars! doesn't look like that on my laptop.
I'll have to sort that out and re-post.
I've finally grabbed a few minutes to do a basic sort on the videos I captured of this year's Perseids on my main meteor camera (Watec 902H2 Ultimate fitted with 2.1mm f1.0 Computar lens). I recorded nearly 70 Perseids. Here are three of them.
Last night was a bit of a mixed bag in West Sussex.
I managed to persuade my long-suffering wife to join me out on the patio with a couple of sunbeds facing northwards. I did enjoy the six I saw (to Janie's four!) but the viewing conditions were not good as the attached video confirms. Janie is used to my night-time excursions to the garden but her comment that this was more like a Meteor Drop than a shower was difficult to argue! I'm pleased to have read that others fared much better than we did ......

Just a reminder for you Shropshire/West Midlands folks, I'm arranging a low-key weekend of Perseid watching and general astronomy antics in Shropshire. Six quid a night, dark sky, friendly campsite. The details and some pictures are on my blog in the sig. Everyone welcome!
When we observed the Perseids meteor shower 12 August 2016 my girlfriend Gunilla managed to shoot a great smoker. She uses a Canon EOS M with a 22mm f2.0 lens wide open mounted on a tripod.
You can see the GIF animation here:
There is also a full HD animation link at the end of the text.
Really nice and I didn't know the smoke can last for almost ten minutes.
