Perseids over the Mojave 2097+19

I guess this is my final effort from the weekend light show - a composite of 20 frames for a total of 22 meteors - one frame actually had 3 meteors in it. I could see quite a few others in my 689 frames but they were not as brilliant as these - some very faint. So, run time was about 5 hours from around 11 pm to 4:30 am. I lit the foreground with one small LED panel, by the way. It was a beautiful night on the high desert: clear, calm, and cool. I spent it with a cousin and a friend - couldn't have been a more perfect night.
