Perseids upon a life

Location of photo

Nikon D7200-Tokina 11-20mm at 11mm-Shutter Speed 25 seconds-ISO Speed 3200-Aperture f2.8
The 2018 Perseid meteor shower in August captured from Tekab, Iran. This photo composite shows the shower peak activity over the course of 2 hours. Meteors are caught on various frames of a photo sequence and superimposed to a single shot of the sequence to show the diversity and the actual place of the meteors that night compared to the background stars. My setup consisting of a Nikon D7200 and a 11-20mm f/2.8 Tokina lens seems to have caught 14 Perseids with exposure 25 seconds, ISO 3200 and aperture f/2.8 in 18 individual exposures.
