Details:
One of the approximately 100 Draconids I saw over a time span of 2 hours tonight. The highest observed activity was around 23:10 UT (after that clouds rolled in), with sustained count rates of 2 meteors per minute under suburban-rural sky conditions (visual limiting magnitude around 6.0). This should roughly indicate a ZHR in the 200-300 range, much higher than predicted.

Details: Nikon D700, 14mm f/2.8 Samyang lens, 8 second exposure at ISO 3200. The image is cropped.
