I'll do some things different next time, but I'm reasonably happy with my first attempt at the Milky Way and Perseid meteor storm:

ISO 6400, f/4, 25-sec. with 5D MkIII with 24-105mm at 24mm.
Next time I'll go up to ISO 12800 or 25,600 and stop down just a bit to reduce vignetting. I think that I was far enough out of town for the Milky Way, but for something low in the sky, like Perseid, I need to be another 20 or 30-miles out.
