Details:
Began as clear sky about 0030 UT, I began taking images till sky became useless with cloud by 0330 UT. Good bright Perseids but as always came in spurts with 30-55 minutes of none.

I was located in light polluted Halifax and
at the apartment building parking lot, I had to hide behind a pickup truck and garage to block out the lights behind me thus only being able to view a swath of sky to east and overhead.

Used my tripod mounted Canon xsi, 50mm f/1.8 lens at 400 ISO and 10 second exposures. Caught one at 11:58pm. Aimed near radiant area. Meteor went though Cassiopeia.
