Geosync satellite trails
Observing location

Canon 6D, 200mm lens, dodgy star tracker

Highly cropped and processed duff single frame - not expecting to see the trails! The orientation of the satellite trails is at an angle to the small star trails in this "reject" image. Shows the inclination of their orbits to the celestial / Earth equator. I can see 16 satellite trails, speaking for myself!
