I have long wanted to get this target but hopeless from home due to heavy LP and never had a chance to be in a dark location when it was up until now. But my FOV is too small and this is why it was an experiment.

Was horrified at the number of satelittes and planes that flew through the FOV, every single sub had at least one or a bunch of them - possibly geostationery satellites as some were in the same position as last month. Not enough data to process out and I have decided to give up on this target with my mono cameras and try again later with my DSLR which has a bigger FOV. If indeed I am in the right place at the right time.
