If you read through, it's not a single 30-sec shot, it's 17 30-sec shots stacked.  And it's apparent that the source was using a mount since there is no star or comet motion, which explains some breadth of the satellite tracks, dependent on the total time span of the 17 shots.  But the gut feel (which is often wrong!) is that still seems like too many tracks, spread too far apart, even for 17 shots _at_ 30 sec each.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Starlinks and comet pictured

There is a picture of comet NEOWISE and a great many Starlink satellites at the link below. However, I can't imagine how the sats could track like that in just the quoted 30 second duration. The batches I've seen follow one another in more of a straight line. Comments?
