The Starlink launches was a subject discussed today on a radio comedy panel game ~ during which it was noted that an anagram of Elon Musk was Lone Skum?

Keep the pics coming

I fully expect a plugin for Photoshop - if someone can produce something as ludicrous as Start Spikes Pro then Starlink should be childs play :gaffer:

Starlink satellites to get sunshades to dim down their brightness:

Yes it's shocking.  I found it on Astrobin and it's a single 10min sub from a long imaging run.  Similar subs will become more and more frequent over the coming months and years.  The good news is that pixel rejection techniques during stacking (e.g. sigma stacking) should entirely eliminate those satellite trails.

Also the muskites are allegedly making them non reflective , but not sure if its retroactive , probably not,

Well good news from last night.

I got this in a 900sec Ha sub last night, the consensus on SGL was that it was a SpaceEx group of satellites, It's certainly not typical of a plane. 

Single sub stretched in Maxim software (and yes I know now there is no H in Gecko, I was sure I saw it spelt with an h recently):



The good news is my software processed it out as I used the sub in the stack.  Using Sigma average stacking 1.8 in Astroart. 

NB: Image not ready to properly process yet, need at least 1 or more nights on it.
