After many days of cloudy skies the critical nights surprisingly and fortunately were almost cloud free and I could witness dozens of perseid meteors. The night from the 12th to the 13th was good with 50 observed meteors in four hours, of which at least 49 were perseids. Almost the same number was captured by my camera pointed at the radiant using a rotating mount. Last night was equally as good with over 40 meteors captured on camera and a similar number seen with my naked eyes. Remarkably last night there were more bright fireballs, at least three very bright ones of which my camera caught at least one.
The images were assembled from thousands of single frames shot at 20mm, 5s, f/1.4, ISO3200 on a Nikon D750. Image 1 and 2 are from the night before last night, number 3 from last night.

Lovely images, Laura. I dont get to see Perseids any more, since I left Scotland for Australia, so its good to see images like this. Vielen dank :)
