I've seen 200 Oneweb and over 2000 Starlinks.
When launched, Onewebs are mag 6. In operational orbit, they are about mag 8 or 9.
Other than Starlinks, I don't post my observations because I didn't think anyone would be interested.
My observing goal is to see every satellite brighter than mag 11 to determine apparent and standard magnitude.
Every sighting is direct visual. Nothing remote or photographic.
I'm glad to share info on anything I've seen.
