Perseid Meteor Shower 2016 - 2017

All of the above images except the lower right were from the 2016 Perseid meteor shower, shot at Lassen National Park in California, under exquisitely dark and clear sky conditions.  The lower right image was from the 2017 shower, which was expected to be largely ruined by the moon rising about 11 PM just in time to wash out the meteorites.  But I was hoping to catch moon-rise lighting on Lassen peak before the sky got too bright.  A meteorite was nice enough to show up just in time.  The milky way is already largely washed out!  The exposures are all in the range of 10 to 15  seconds.
