The images show Perseid meteors caught during the night of Aug 11-12, 2012. Unfortunately, the night started out fairly cloudy. It did improve as the evening went on.

The camera was an Imaging Source DMK41BF02 controlled with AstroIIDC. A cheap CS lens was attached to the camera with the entire device supported on a camera tripod. I was shooting wherever I could at the start and then focused on Aries which was in the path of a number of meteors. The plate solving at is a bit off but does give an idea of the radiant in Perseus..
