Jupiter and 23 Geostationary Satellites

Recommended Posts

Here's my entry for the satellite challenge, it was taken on the 21st March (equinox) which is when geostationary satellites tend to reflect most light back to us. I noticed that Jupiter was very close in alignment to their orbit so thought I'd see if I could get some in the same field of view. I was using a 200mm Canon lens on my Sony A7s body and took a series of 5 second exposures @6400iso, the kit was all mounted on my Astrotrac, I used startrails program to combine 15 consecutive frames to make this image. If you zoom in on Jupiter you can also make out a couple of its moons.

Very good! Indeed it is a very thought-provoking image - it's crowded up there.

But to be a pedantic wet blanket:

The theme for the second Challenge - April 2017 - is Jupiter!

Start Date: 1st April 2017
End Date: 30th June 2017

and the theme to the first challenge is "Satellites", so fits perfectly here too.

I like it a lot :)

Well pedanted!

I assumed it was for the Jupiter challenge, a worthy entry for the Satellite challenge!

I do like this one. :)

I think it fits both challenges equally well :wink:
