Got a new camera and working to try and photograph satellites/meteors and lightning.

Was able to get a shot of Iridium 64 earlier tonight. Came out okay but I'm still learning the camera.

While checking for flare passes, I see there's a unique (?) opportunity at my location on the 30th, as Iridiums 42 & 98 will flare just 22 seconds and 1 degree apart in about the same spot in the sky near Polaris. I hope there will be clear skies that morning, but will be trying to get more camera time to practice before this one. 

Off the list, if anyone has preferential settings for their camera when they photograph the stars, I'd like to know so I can test my camera out.

Thanks.
