After a miserable day it cleared up for for an hour or so at dusk and then from around 00:30 through to dawn. I picked up a total of 219 Geminids (out of 326 captures) on two cameras including this  bright and long one which came when the radiant was low in the east. The original video is online here. Certainly good activity in the  clear skies with quite a few cases of multiple events within a few seconds.

Last night's complete collection is available here.
