Recently bought an allsky setup, and after a few dodgy starts - hot-pixel prone camera etc, i'm steadily improving the quality of my captures.

my 3rd and 4th attempts - lots of activity - ISS? and other satellites?

A very clear night - a few tweaks to the exposure/gain settings and lots more stars visible.
Some stuff to spot: ISS makes a couple of visits, as do a couple of other satellites, one night jet flight (red light briefly visible) and two bats.
