Done is the word, Keith!
Oh, sorry, forgot a word in front, senior moment. The word is "well!"
Well done.

Tried to get some Perseids before moon rise- not much time before the glow got overwhelming.

Moon rise, and we're done.

In Michigan we had rain until Saturday night, once the clouds cleared I had to deal with a 62% moon that just didn't want to set, I finally left the beach at 2:35 am. I saw quite a few but not very visible because of the moon, this one was the brightest.
Little Sable Point Lighthouse on Lake Michigan.
I also shot a timelapse, I hope videos are allowed.

Excellent! Thanks for sharing.

I'm a little late in posting these images; nevertheless, I worked really hard on them and feel they are worth posting for others to see. These four composite images were taken with various cameras and lenses. Overall, I took over 20,000 images over three days using six cameras. I was lucky enough to experience the outburst the night of August 11th. It was an awesome show. It's too bad the Moon interfered so much.

Wow! Excellent composites, really terrific.

2021 is supposed to be a particularly good year for seeing and shooting the
Perseids, mainly because of the cooperation of the crescent moon which sets in plenty of time.

I’m going to try shooting with my 16-35mm lens even though it opens just to f/4. It is my fastest wide angle. Perhaps I should try test shots over the next few nights not just for exposure, but also for the time lapse settings. I forget between times how to set that up.
