Starlink trails on my meteor cameras

I get these intrusive trails on my meteor cameras predominantly in the morning before dawn. Here are two images close together on the morning of March 12. As astronomers we record what ever is going on in our skies, these man made events will be part of that. We were all excited to see Sputnik in 1957, it heralded a new era for mankind, this latest development in part of the same era. Let us hope that the effect of these on our images can be diminished in the future by making them less reflective, but don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen!
