Perseid Meteor Shower

The Perseid Meteor Shower was a dud for me. I setup a camera on an intervalometer to take a 30 second exposure every 30 seconds for 5 hours but only recorded two meteors. This was the night before the “peak” and perhaps it was a grand show the next day but unfortunately I was not able to take any pictures so this is it.

The image below is a stacking of all images from first meteor event to last meteor event, a total duration of 34 minutes. This is not one long exposure, it just appears that way.
