Yes indeed!  I take my Newton with me when I go out to observe, and it's
never been damaged during a meteor shower.

I have to say, as much as I love Newt, if I could show off the tell-tale
marks of a meteorite particle passing through it, I'd be tempted to switch
to another Newton and retire this one, its wound of honour intact.  After
all, just imagine what a great story it would be to tell your grandkids,
complete with the visual aid.    ;-)
