In a common work with students of the Astronomie-AG of the Progymnasium Rosenfeld, an observing campaign was carried out for the Perseid Meteor shower 2009. The weather was overcast on August 11th, but the next evening about fifty Perseid Meteors were caught despite moonlight. Thanks to Prof. Hanns Ruder for the generous instrumental support.
