Here is the result when we wait too long before launching the pose for an Iridium flash. For this one, Iridium 53 flashed at magnitude -2. I wait too long and launch the pose when I saw it. But it was too late, that the reason why the trail is truncated on its upper part.
More, the camera has moved when I launch the pose, thus the upper part of the flash is bent.
