Details:
Exceptionally clear skies quickly gave way to mostly cloudy skies shortly after I started shooting. Camera was mounted on an iOptron Skytracker to follow the radiant. Most of the meteors in this composite image were captured in the first 30 minutes -- although I kept shooting for another two hours.

The bright meteor in the upper right was captured during a period that was mostly cloudy so that part of the track was obscured by clouds. I didnt see this one but was aware of it because it lit up the sky in all directions.
