Here's a shot of the Milkyway I took three nights ago just before the bright moon rose. It is a single 1 minute exposure at ISO 1600 - standard camera tripod - no tracking - using a 4.5mm fisheye lens.
And another image taken the next day - processed slightly differently (this was from 9 - 30 seconnd exposures).
I lucked out with these shots - no visible objects tracking through. However, on another series of 30 second exposures I had what would initially appear to be a meteor - except from the length of the 3 exposures it was caught on - it looks to have lasted around 1 minute. So I am guessing it may have been a satellite that rotated to suddenly become bright. Notice the "curved path" caused by the edge of the fisheye. I don't know - if anyone has a better theory let me know.
