Samyang f1.4 85mm lens
x282 10 sec exposures (ISO 3200)

Aim of an hours worth of exposures was to try and capture Barnard's Loop.  Failed with this camera but I did capture many satellites.  I guess the 21st century vermin of the skies is not asteroids but satellites?  The main geostationary belt is about 8 deg below the celestial equator because of course I was about 5,000 km above the plane of the equator.
