Perseids Meteor Shower and the Milky Way

Milky Way
Thursday morning, three of us spent from midnight to 4 AM at the Stone Barn, photographing the Milky Way and the Perseids meteor shower.  The sky was mostly clear, although we did have some clouds move through around 2 AM.  Everybody photographed in different directions and despite that, and the number of meteors that appeared in the sky.  We all only got a few pictures show in the meteors.  One thing that did happen and required more constant attention than we gave it was that the lenses fogged up because of the moisture in the year.  Yes, I did not think of it, but I should've brought with us the hand warmers to wrap around the lenses.  Even so, it was an amazing night and between 3 AM and 4 AM, we had at least are probably more than 97 meteors appear in the sky..  Although the peak is passed, there is still the possibilities of seeing a number of meteors, this weekend, especially since at least Saturday night, the skies supposed to be clear.
