Sept 13/14th Meteors

It was another good night weather-wise. Compared to the rest of the month when my camera was detecting ~20 meteors a night, only 14 were seen last night. Perhaps the bright sky (the Moon is only 2 days from Full) is washing out the fainter meteors. So far this September, the camera has picked up 229 meteors.
