Excellent: good detail and exposure (compared with mine anyway). What equipment and exposure details?

That is a great image showing some fine detail. It looks like the focus was close even without being able to refocus.

Cheers,

Thanks guys

I used a DMK21 +IR Filter on a C9.25 manually guided wthrough finder.

1/1250 sec, high gamma, low gain, 30 fps

I had focused it the night before but that's no guarantee with an SCT.

Even though it is only a couple of hundred Kilometers away, i just think images of this from the ground are AMAZING.

I guess it is the hard work involved in imaging it that impresses me most.

Brilliant.

On a related not, what's the smallest a scope can be whilst still being able to see detail in the ISS?

Hi nice one I saw it go over the other night after a quick look out the window to see how clear it was before I went to bed.

I started off imaging it with a 6" F5 Newt and as you can see there's still quite a bit of detail

That really shows the advantage of using a colour camera for ISS imaging, great colour contrast on the first images.

Cheers,

Considering the lack of time "to refocus", that really is an excellent result. Thanks for sharing.

Although I agree to a degree and do really like the effect you get with colour - you get 4 times as many pixels with a mono camera so should be able to see smaller details.
