Nice photos of the meteors. I've yet to bag any of those. I don't seem to have any luck pointing the camera in the right place at the right time!
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.

I didn't manage to catch a Perseid but caught one near Aquila on Friday.

I was more or less clouded out. I got an hour of partially clear sky during which I saw 6 bright perseids - that was it. I didn't bother with the camera.
