    I use a GSkyer Telescope. But camping someplace dark during the Annual Perseid Meteor shower is worth it!!! August 11-13th AC72ECE7-2240-4693-8E21-47FF13CA19D6.jpeg

    We were in Colorado for the Perseid in 2018. I laid back in my zero gravity chair at our campsite. It was great.

    I'll be camping in upstate NY near lake Ontario from Aug 8th-15th. Hopefully I can kick back in my zero gravity chair and watch it too!

    The media over hypes meteor showers. And you do much better with very dark skies and a low horizon. We out here in the far west are fortunate in that we can drive to dark skies. Back east, not so much.
