Photographic observations of the Perseid meteors are analysed and discussed
from the point of view of possible long-term variation of meteor heights. The
variation as suggested previously on the basis of radar observations is
apparently a function of the solar cycle and is most evident on the endpoint
heights distribution. The observed endpoint heights of the photographic
Perseids, normalized and corrected for standard factors influencing the
height distribution, exhibit no variation correlating with the solar cycle
