From last night, about 19:28 local time, I noticed on Heavens Above there was going to be two Iridium Flares, 34 and 51,  in close proximity and about 40 seconds apart heading north of Ursa Minor. So I stacked these two images taken at 25 seconds, f/4, ISO 1600. Just thought it was interesting!

Excellent work Richard  Wink stacking looks clean and still sharp. I have been trying to capture these for a week or so now, but am having no luck with timing, focus and the clouds lol.

Very impressive image, Richard! My first thought was that it was a single frame, not a stack  Grin
