Description:
This is one of more than a hundred 30-second photos of M42 that I let the telescope and computer shoot while I was taking a nap. I hope to stack them later. I identified the satellite as Iridium 69 using Guide 8, running under Wine, and the latest ALL_TLE.TXT satellite orbital elements file.
