To catch the meteor trains, aim slightly away from the radiant of the shower. Use a wide angle, 1/2 or 1 stop closed down. Try different exposures beforehand to figure out where sky glow from light pollution becomes a problem. Do some exposures at 400 or 800 iso for a few minutes to 10 or 15....depending on the amount of light pollution.

Have fun!
