As an amateur astronomer I've always wondered how detrimental 1,000 StarLink satellites could be to viewing the stars from an Earth-bound location. Apparently, according to this article, it is a lot more problematic than Elon Musk led on initially. Currently, they have only deployed the first batch of satellites, yet already some telescope long exposures are looking like this:
Now that it's rather obvious that these satellites are not invisible to longer exposures, has SpaceX made public statements about potential changes to their deployment plans or designs?
If this should be migrated to Astronomy, let me know. It's more in regards to future SpaceX plans than why/how the interference is happening.
