    Hi John & list,
    I also have my problems with GEO sats. ;-)
    This image above was recorded on 2001-07-23 from 21:00 to 21:30 UTC.
    The bright star in the upper left is Atair in Aquila. It shows at
    least 3 satellite tracks and on the lower right corner a tumbling
    payload or rocket body (?) but also no signs of GEO sats.
    Well, I'm not sure, but I think what looks like GEO sats in this
    photo are in real scratches on the film. Any ideas?
    You can compare this photo with another one I took on the same film
    ( It shows an
    Iridium flare with -7mag on the same day and was taken from
    22:50-22:57 UTC. My location at that time was 51.905 deg N, 11.068 E.
