The qualitys kinda bleh but I'm seeing alot of objects like the 1 in this image. Seems like a satellite, should we mark them incase they are asteroids or just ignore them?

That looks more like bad subtraction to me (see e.g. here (http://cosmoquest.org/Ice_Investigators:_FAQ)).

I agree, more likely to be bad subtraction.

However, I think we need to have a (modest-sized) gallery of examples of such bad subtractions.

Until we have such a gallery on the main site, we could start one here on the forum. :)
