Equipment Details:

Canon 6D, Lensbaby Circular Fisheye 5.8mm f/3.5 (set at f/4), 30 seconds at ISO 3200, Backyard EOS, hair dryer on second tripod for dew control.

Image Details:

After a quick review of 700 images captured last evening, I only captured a single bright Perseid Meteor, there may be additional dim ones captured when I further process the images. You can see this bright meteor streak above center near the constellation Cassiopeia (sideways W) and pointing in the direction of Perseus. The brighter stars have been enhanced in this image to help orient your view, North is marked on the image.
