2017 Perseid Meteor Shower

The nearly 3rd quarter moon rose early and made it difficult to see or photograph the Perseid meteors this year. Contrary to sensationalist articles on the internet, this was also a weak Perseid shower, though I was able to capture a few meteors bright enough to be seen even against the moonlit sky as shown in this composite image.
