What was that?

Just setting up to image Rosetta Nebula and at about 9.50 noticed something heading West or East☺ that only travelling very slowly...any ideas and did you happen to capture it?

For an astronomer,you should know your cardinal directions?
Heading West or East?,two entirely different directions

I know but I have to look at my captures which I cant do yet..all I saw was a East West line and no way of knowing which way it was going...when I am able to look at my captures, because I think I may have at least two with it...then I can say which way it went.

I dont want to look in the capture file as I find the camera can play up if you try to do other stuff on the lappy.

Probably a satellite. For some reason every time I try to image the Rosette I get more satellite trails per square arc second than any other patch of sky. There must be some favorable location for geostationary satellites right there.

I just realised the last post in the locked thread should have gone here but I cant edit it ... no worries ..anyways stacked all the data and surprise surprise nothing showed up in the final stacked image...I assume DSS eliminated the corrupted frames.
