Same here Mark - if it's of any consolation. However I did see a couple of bright meteors during my last session out on Tuesday morning. The sky was beautifully clear with the Moon well out of the way & the brightest one streaked towards the Pleiades. I had set up my 135mm camera lens to image the area around the Double Cluster/Soul & Heart nebulae area - with the vain hope that I may catch a Perseid streaking through the field. Alas, it was not to be. I've still to process my result but hope that others here had more success with the actual meteor shower.
