Saturday 11 August Perseid attempt!

Well had a go at the Perseid meteor shower on Saturday night without much success. I did manage to capture a few weak ones and one photo with a meteor and the ISS passing in to Earth's shadow. I captured a better ISS passing in to the shadow again on Sunday (in a break in the clouds) but no meteors this time as it was very cloudy!
