I don't know whether that thing it is a meteor or a satellite. From the shape it seems to be more likely a satellite. I haven't took a lot of shots with this lens, but it seems to be a little "blind" to me. Once when I was exposing with this lens, a bright meteor of -1 mag flight over the camera's field of view. However, there is no trace of it on the film (1 stop pushed E200).
Igor, I have played a lot with post processing of the frame. I have applied HDR software several times and employed local adjustments. You have guessed right - the film wasn't pushed. The night was one of the best ten of the last year. However, I believe you or Nightfly have much darker skies. I rate my site as better Bortle 4 in average.
