ISS solar transit

Posted (edited)

Hi all, managed to process my images of the ISS solar transit a few days ago. Huge learning curve for me with layer masking in Photoshop. What a great bunch of people on here that has helped me, I was beginning to despair of getting to grips with it. Anyway the image is composed of 12 images using a lunt 60mm HA telescope with skywatcher solarquest mount and zwo asi 120mm camera. Avi file was broken down into 16 files containing image of the ISS and saved as tiff files, these were then processed in Photoshop and false colour added.

All I have to say is that acquiring the image was the easy part, lol. 

P.S added a second image that includes all 16 of the layers, and a zoomed image, phew, lol.

Thanks peps, I appreciate all the nice comments. I must admit it wasn't easy thing for me to do. But I'm glad I persevered. Chuffed to bits.

My mistake.. the lunar tranits are visible in Lichfield. But I have three solar transits visible from home this month, and two of them are pretty close to centre.
