The front group of Starlink V1.0 - L26

On May 15, yet another batch of SpaceX Starlink satellites was launched, and they are currently making evening and early night passes over Europe. Since launch, the resulting 'train' of satellites from the launch has split into two distinct groups passing a few minutes after each other.

The video above is from yesterday night (19 May 2021 ~23:17 UT) and shows the leading group, which is still quite tight. The trailing group (also captured but not shown in this video clip) is more dispersed. The video was shot with my DSLR: Canon EOS 80D + Samyang 1.4/85 mm lens.

A night earlier, I captured both the leading and trailing group with the WATEC 902H2 Supreme + FD 1.8/50 mm lens (see video below). They were naked eye during that pass.
