First attempt at imaging meteors. I somehow thought there would be more in my 500 x 10s subs, but these are the only real candidates. My criterion was that any candidate must not be causally related to anything in the single frames preceding or subsequent to its own (so satellite trails run over at least two frames). The time for each image is given as the centre of the exposure. Cassiopeia can be seen in the lower left , and M31 in the last couple of frames

The very first (top left) appears to have nothing to do with Perseus? I guess the Perseids dont have a monopoly on their showcase nights.
