First try ever at some Iridium Flares with my new Canon EOS 700D Reflex camera, but the results are surely interesting! The background pic is an integration of 30x10 shots at ISO 800 at 24mm focal length, with 5 dark frames. The two flares are taken separately both in 30 ISO 800 shots. Then processed and combined together via software.
