Only saw about half-dozen bright Perseid meteors over a four hour period, but was lucky enough to capture one. Integrated all images, and then used PixInsight pixel math to add in the single meteor frame "(integrated + meteor)/2"

There was very high humidity, but good seeing. I used two hand warmers as dew heaters, and it worked beautifully. Changed battery in the middle of the session, and re-framed.
