    Damn, I read wrong. I wonder if it'd still be worth my time to go. Any setting's to start off with?

    Set your lens to wide as possible and open your aperture as much as possible. Go for 30 second exposures at around ISO 800 to ISO 1600. Just keep shooting 30 second exposures all night. You should capture a few.

    The radiant is the constellation Leo.

    Clouded over here so no go. There's also a sun spot visible for the next few days till it going to the back of the sun if anyone has the gear to shoot it. I've been trying all day, but clouds won't cooperate.
