Comet C2020 F3 Neowise and Starlink Satellites

Monday, July 20 2020 at around 9:45 pm MDT. Canon Rebel XSi, 250mm focal length, f/5.6. Exposure times 30 seconds per frame. Minimal processing, just a Curves adjustment and rescaling. Ugly, but enough to boost the contrast so you can see detail.

It was super windy: the Starlink trails are due to the camera being blown around during the exposure.

This was my first time seeing Starlink in person. It was amazing how they just kept coming. I lost count but I'm sure there were over 30 of them.
