Hi @Frederic I will be bringing a recliner chair to just enjoy the meteor shower.

I have missed meteor shower far too many times, so hoping to see it live is my first priority.

Anyone who wish to use or explore my Nikon D750, tripod and remote I'm happy to carry along.

like you @Gaurav I was coming to enjoy the show vs shoot, but now @samamara has kindly offered to help with some MIlkyway shots - i may arrive a little earlier and try that out ... hopefully finish by the time the convoy arrives for the shower and then sit back (not able to recline as not yet at the 'posh' level of glamping to have a reclining camping chair) and enjoy the show. 

If you want to shoot the milkyway we can do a slightly earlier arrival and play around a bit.
