Thanks for that link, hadn’t heard much about observations. This was my first real attempt to observe the Perseids. My counts were (all times central daylight time):
8/10/2020 – 12 from 10:05pm to 11:10pm, 6 from 11:10pm to 12:10am on 8/11, stopped around Moonrise
8/11/2020 – 11 from 10:15pm to 11:15pm, then clouds
8/12/2020 – 29 from 1:30am to 2:30am, some glare from the 44% waning Moon
8/13/2020 – No visual counts, just experimented with ZWO 224MC with the kit supplied 2.1mm fisheye lens - on a manual tripod. Started at 10:30pm with variable cloud cover, heavy cloud cover by 11:15pm. Will probably try to use that setup again when the weather clears, and later for the Geminids.
All observations were looking East at about 75 degrees. The best fireball was seen 8/10/2020 at about 10:10pm, thick ion trail. Had just started the first session, and was not positioned to see the full north to south sky, lost track of it right after the flash. From northcentral Minnesota.
