ISS - SEP 26, 2009


The ISS made a brilliant pass over Flagstaff last night, culminating at 81 degrees. The kids came outside with their friends to watch while I contorted around the Dobsonian shooting photos with the Canon 300D. As before, pivoting around Dobson's Hole and reacquiring the racing, coppery point of light was a ridiculous mess--I just about knocked the whole setup over this time. Out of 44 images, the space station showed up in 21. A selection of the least blurry frames are in the strip below.

I would have tied myself in knots trying to achieve this. You've produced a cracking set of images Jeremy!

Thanks Ewan! These aren't even a mere fraction of what Ralf Vandenberg does, but I'm still amazed that I can snag recognizable images of it from my front yard. Now if only there were a way to tether the base of the Dob solidly to the ground...
