Imaging the Space Station!

19-3-28 ISS 19Ok it’s not that impressive but this is, i swear to god, the ISS photographed wednesday night from a schoolyard down the street.  It would have been 500 or so km away travelling 28,000 kph.  the shot was taken hand-held at a bit less than full zoom, 1/2000 sec, ISO 400, f 6.3. I was following settings taken from this site which has some better samples.  There are a bunch more bright passes over the next couple of weeks so i’ll keep trying.

Tonight there’s a less bright pass so i’m going to try a timelapse movie to get some sort of streak effect. I’m going to go a bit east to the edge of ottawa/cumberland to get out of the worst of the local light pollution.
