Is that a galaxy I see in the top left-hand corner of the image. If it is, it must be H U G E !!

It is an orange band, I don't know what causes them.

Some more over here:

Not all of them look like chip gaps - I don't know what they are either.

Just found jdalcanton's answer to a similar question elsewhere "Probably an internal reflection in the camera from a bright star outside of the field."

I've seen a broad yellow band like this labelled as a possible satellite/asteroid trail by one of the scientists. Can't find it again, sorry.

Might be this http://talk.andromedaproject.org/objects/AAP0000alj or discussion about this much narrower trail http://talk.andromedaproject.org/objects/AAP0000fhn

The more I look at it, the more uncertain I am. It would help if I could see adjacent images, is there any way of doing that?

Sadly no there isn't. That would make tracking these things down easier though wouldn't it?

Yes, it most certainly would. Is there any way that this feature could be requested?
