Description

Using ASILive, I did not save the individual subs, so was unable to remove the satellite trail. I'm sure there is a way; will have to study up on that.

But the closer I look at this, I wonder if it could be an asteroid. The dashes would be 10 sec long, with the brief space between them the brief moment before starting the next sub. I have not seen any satellite move this slow.

Description: Reprocessing prevented overexposure, blown out stars and noise. Also, the color balance is probably closer to reality, as I look at other combined photos of the Horse Head and Flame nebula.
