Hi Tony,in spite of the poor weather for the Geminids I did a watch from 00.00UT until 03.00UT. In that time I saw 47 meteors all but two of which were Geminids. There seemed to be a high number passing through Perseus and I was lucky enough to get two on camera. The first image also shows part of the nebulosity associated with the center of Perseus plus the Double Cluster. Canon 400D 50mm 1.8 lens at f2.8 for 20 seconds on ISO1600.
