ISS capture 8th June


Recommended Posts

Inspired by Dan's fine image of the ISS I thought I'd have a go. This is my first attempt so it wont be winning any prizes.

My first capture just had bright lines instead of the ISS but as I developed my technique I managed to get an image, the scale was too small with the SPC900 at prime focus in my SW250 so while waiting for the ISS to come round again I setup a x2 barlow. I was quite suprised I got anything at all, just 10 frames in over 2000.

Cant wait for the next time now....

How on earth (no pun intended!) do you track the ISS?!? I don't think my fingers could work that fast!

Nice capture btw.

Hi, Thanks. Not easy to track with the EQ mount, I moved the OTA manually and used the finderscope to keep it on the crosshairs. Well I say "keep", it was more hit and miss. :grin:
