All I need is a cloudless sky.
I did see the Perseids once while driving to work early one morning, it was quite a spectacular show.

A nice crisp clear photo Ed, and lucky to have a cloud free sky to see it.

Ed D said:Thank you Mike. Trying out the lunar11 rule. ISO 100, F11, 1/100. It is a full moon tonight (23-08-2021) so I will try again. Just hoping the clouds stay away. :-)
You're welcome, it seems to be doing the job
Minor adjustments made. Taken at 05.00 today 24-08-2021. Had to lower the quality to get it to upload. :-)
For those hoping to get a glimpse of the moon this month

The Full Moon closest to the September equinox is called the Harvest Moon, and it is either in September or October. The Harvest Moon in 2016 was a Supermoon. The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon nearest the September equinox, which occurs around 22nd September. Most years, the Harvest Moon is in September, but around every three years, it is in October.
