Comet 46P/Wirtanen imaged with Orion 10 reflector + Canon EOS 650D. Stack of 24x60s images tracking on comet. Quite light pollution from sub area.
The comet was at -6°25 declination from my position, the same as the geoastationary satellites. In variuos of the exposures you can see the trace of a satellite.
I processed the with DeepSkyStacker selection Maximum at stack method to register all. In this way all the satellites appear in the final image.
doted lines are the stars displaced from picture to picture.
