In the night from Saturday to Sunday I had set up my Nikon D500 with the Samyang 135mm and photographed the radiant of the Perseids between 11 pm and about 4 am. Unfortunately, I was only able to capture one Perseid on the sensor in the entire 5 hours. OK, the peak is around August 12, but I expected a few more. Well then, new attempt, new luck…

Heart & Soul Nebula can still be seen above.
