Not even sure this is the right section. But I was shooting Venus and Pleiades on April 5th when a strange object appeared in my pictures. So I stopped the tracking on my mount to see it pass through the frame. These are 164x 5 second subs taken with a Canon M50 with a 300mm lens. So it took a little over 13 minutes to get through the frame. I'm near Montreal, Quebec. I thought ISS but that traverses the entire sky normally in about 3-4 minutes. And other satellites at 5 seconds leave a trail. Anyone have any idea what this could be?
