On May 24, at 02:30 UTC, the company SpaceX made the first launch of 60 satellites Starlink, a large global satellite network of SpaceX.

 

Yesterday because of clouds it was impossible for me to visualize it, today I was able to visualize it through 10x50 binocular and capture this video.

 

I recommend viewing in a dark room and at 720p resolution. I get to count about 40 units, are a few that fall below the sensitivity threshold, and some are displayed in a very close apparent position.

Equipment used:
TS 60/360 ED
Camera ZWO 183MM BIN 4 Filter L.

There is no tracking, fixed camera.

 

The view through the 10x50 binoculars has been incredible, this is very close to what was seen, the line of satellites covered 90% of the field.  It is very worth seeing with binoculars.
