Although I havn't had much of a chance to do much astrophotography recently (between the crap weather and putting together a 4k fireball monitoring
camera system), I thought I'd better contribute something. Here are a pair of timelapses (4k resolution) I shot over night of the 20th/21st March
Approximately 5 hrs or 1612 individual 10 sec exposures condensed into a little over a minute of footage. At least two aircraft, three meteors, and
numerous satellites captured. Canon 1Ds MkII + 24mm 1.4L MkI. 10s, ISO1600, f1.4. Software used: C1 Pro + Davinci Resolve.
Approximately 5 hrs or 1608 individual 10 sec exposures condensed into a little over a minute of footage. Polaris is at the top of the field of view,
and all other stars appear to rotate around it. I counted over 80 (obvious) satellites, and two aircraft. Many of the satellites are only visible as
brief flares, and at least some of these are likely "space junk". A thorough analysis would probably reveal many more.
A few keen eyed members here might also spot a tri-satellite formation at one point in the timelapse.
There are also slight hints of "air-glow" visible in the sky, which look like a very faint red and green haze that drifts through the field of view
over the course of the timelapse. Equipment/settings: Canon 1Ds MkII + 24mm 1.4L MkI. 10s, ISO1600, f1.4. Software used: C1 Pro + Davinci Resolve.
