1) Get up in the mountains away from the light.
2) Point the camera a bit away from the point of origin. The streaks are longer
3) Use film. (No Sensor Heat Issues.)
4) The Lyrids are frustrating. Few per hour requires long exposures if using film.
5) If you use digital take a series of 5 to 10 minute exposures to reduce heat issues and then layer together.
