As the ISS was visible and being chased by SpaceX quite low to my horizon , I abandoned the backyard and sat in a bedroom to watch from an elevated position. With time on my hands I wondered what might be achieved image wise just by pointing my Canon 600d plus telephoto lens (f=240mm.) at it. I was surprised that you could acquire a recognizable image of sorts. The picture is a rough composite of radical enlargements of star like dots on the original widefield images. Exposure times and ISO ratings were varied. The best images being obtained at 1/500 sec at ISO 6400. Not pretty but remarkable what a  relatively inexpensive camera hand-held by an old man hanging out of an upstairs window can achieve!
