    Hi all,
    Last Sunday, one of the images I made had the Milstar 6 r/b (03-013B) located 
    exactly in the dark "fish mouth" region of M42, Orion's nebula.
    It yielded a pretty picture which you can see here:
    The same post also includes a single 6.8 x 5 degree image with 9 geostationary 
    satellites in it.
    I am very happy I purchased that Zeiss lens recently! It is a geostationary magnet!
