ISS vs Alioth 6/4/2016

Recommended Posts

As it was clear last night, I casually checked heavens-above.com to see if there was a good ISS pass.  As it turned out, there was..  and the track from my location passed right through Alioth in Ursa Major!

I was rather annoyed that I hadn't discovered this early enough to set up the telescope+webcam pointed at Alioth in the hope of capturing the ISS.  Previous attempts to capture it with the telescope have been marginal at best struggling to track it by hand on an EQ mount.

Anyway, here's a stack of 3 x 30sec exposures shot on my Fuji S9600 bridge camera as a consolation.
