How to photograph the Perseids meteor shower this weekend

Digital Camera World:

Peaking between 10-12 August this year, the Perseids occur when the nights are reliably warm and the skies are more likely to be clear. In 2018, there’s another bonus, and that’s moonlight – or, specifically, a lack of it. Photographing shooting stars this August, therefore, will be relatively straightforward.

So, are you ready to catch a falling star… or 50?

I’m really hoping the weather holds for us this weekend because I want to teach my son how to capture “shooting stars”. If you have the gear, it’s fairly easy to set up. Then you need a bit of luck to get good shots.
