August 15, 2010 10:00AM - I had my camera all night pointed towards Polaris and picked up a few Perseids (below are two of the best). I also stacked all of the images into this nice star trail.
August 14, 2010 6:20AM - My lens fogged up so that didnt help. I woke up around 4am and fixed that and decided to switch to using the 50mm lens and that really worked out. A nice meteor flew right by where I was shooting (Cassiopeia)! The last picture of this group is of a couple satellites and the Andromeda Galaxy.
August 13, 2010 6:35AM - I caught several meteors but the numbers seemed to be less than last night (especially bright meteors). I did catch two Bolides (1 Perseid and one Non-Perseid).
August 12, 2010 11:35AM - I caught around 10 meteors but nothing good. I missed one good fireball (could have been the best yet) while I was checking framing from a new location (i had just moved the camera). It would have been right in the center of frame too! Otherwise the best was a pair of meteors that traveled nearly the same spot in just a few minutes
August 11, 2010 10:45AM - I caught several more meteors but nothing as good as the fireball from last night.
August 10, 2010 10:30PM- Already caught two fireballs one being really nice (first picture is at 10mm w/ no crop). These were both from around 9:30PM!
August 10, 2010 - Caught one nice Perseid as well as several others....the sixth picture is a -5 Iridium Flare
August 9, 2010 - Weather has continued to make meteor photography difficult with storms, clouds, & fog. Weather looks to be better (drier) for the next several days so the peak should be good. I have managed to catch a few dim ones still over the last couple days. Heres the best one, a satellite flare, and one of the typical meteor captures ive been getting. From here on out I will be only be using my 10mm lens in the hopes of catching a fireball.
August 6, 2010 - Had major weather intereference last night with fog, clouds, and a dewing up lens (thanks to a rain around sunset). I only got one picture with a couple meteors in it (in a 30 sec exposure) and a flaring satellite gliding by the Pleiades.
August 5, 2010 - I caught several meteors but most were not Perseids. I saw plenty of Perseids but most were so dim the camera didnt pick up on them. I shot with the 10mm lens tonight so only the brightest meteors will show. I did see one fireball but it was not a Perseid (probably a Delta Aquarid). I actually was about to go in since it was getting into twilight. I had stopped the timer and the last picture was taken when I noticed a bright light and before I even knew what it was I clicked the shutter. I only caught the very end of it but still neat (the bright end of it would have actually been much farther back if I had caught the whole thing).

August 3, 2010 - Nice Perseid Meteor! and little random
August 1, 2010 - First Perseid and a random

I hoped I would catch a meteor but I didnt catch anything other than lightning bugs and satellite flares
