    that is one part of a satellite trail i think Rod, there is another visible part
    just too the right of the bright galaxy near the left edge of the image.
    
    The three streaks that dominate the picture are out of focus. you can even
    see the dark centre that you would see with an out of focus image
    in a telescope with a central obstruction. That strengthens the aeroplane
    suggestion
    
    The URL that shows in the browser window while looking at the image on the web
    shows that the telescope is the UK Schimdt, and the plate centre is around
    13h 25min, -40 ( from memory). it implied the hight and width were 60 units.
    what the unit is i am not sure, but it might be arc minutes.
