Will Starlink ruin astrophotography?

Was reading about Elon Musk's Starlink - 10s of thousands of satellites in low earth orbit. Very impressive in some ways, but I guess it's going to make astrophotography a bit of a challenge!

No, we will adapt. As mentioned, this has been heavily discussed in other threads and forums. There are techniques that help.

Not happy with polluting the planet, now we have to pollute space. The things people do for money.
