Has anyone tried to shoot a meteor shower?

Yes, on several occasions on the very rare occasions I've had clear skies & remembered a shower was due. :)
I've typically used 30s exposures with a fast wide lens and using a static tripod. Shooting more or less continuously for an hour or so and only managed to capture one at a time.
My most recent effort is:

Not very impressive I'm afraid.
