Another Iridium Flare

Yet another in my famous series of dark murky shots with tiny dots in them. Click on the image to enlarge it and you will see near the top left, the start of a -6 Iridium flare. In our last exciting installment of "dark murky shots with tiny dots in them" our hero had caught the tail end of a -6 flare by aiming the remote the wrong way. This time everything was set up prefectly, except I presssed the button a tad early, and the automatic "6 seconds and no longer" dark exposure cut off just before the flare was at its brightest.
I have to invest in a talking clock with second accuracy, I think.

"Dark murky shots with tiny dots in them" ;-)

Good shot but not perfect. Yes its a good try. We've also tried to shot an Iridium6 flare in India.

We're Sky Watchers Association of North Bengal (SWAN) from Siliguri, Dist-Darjeeling, West Bengal, India.

Our site is under construction but you can check it and can view a shot of the Iridium6's flare.

Location & time of the flare has been given under the photo.
