ISS on a warm July night (21/07/21)


Recommended Posts

I had a shot on ISS tonight using my 8" Dob and Nikon D3200 on prime focus. My previous attempt that I posted here gave me great sharp results but I thought if I get the exposure even lower, ISS should appear sharper. This time I opted for iso 3200 with exposure of 1/3200s (last time I used iso 1600 and exposure of 1/2500). I shot just over 200 frames with a good capture rate (I only had 3  blancs and 10 or so a bit fuzzy). I followed it on the finder scope. Somehow I ended up in a weird situation that ISS appeared and I was tracking with my left hand and the right hand over the left one shooting, but it worked. A few of the best frames are below.

Nice one, a decent pass wasn't it.
Managed to track in my scope and see the shape better than before and then the new module tracking behind as well.

Thanks. Yes it was great tonight. I will do a visual on the ~2340 pass
