Since the ISS went overhead, I shot at it!

Canon 7D + 100-400L. 100% crops. That's it.

There's another pass just before midnight I might have another go at if I can find the link again to the calculator I used to find out when it is around...

ISS sighting calculator. For me the next pass is roughly appearing 23:17 in the west disappearing 23:27 in the east.

Now, can I hand hold the 1325mm scope?... at least the ISS is damn bright.

Now I remember why I don't try to hand hold 1325mm f/13 without stabilisation...

Got some shots out of it though. Here's one:

Can make out the solar panel arrays more clearly on each side here. Other shots were very similar, wonder if I can stack them...

Wow, I never would have thought it'd be visible with a 100-400L.

Cool shots, Popo!

Have you ever tried shooting an ISS transit? If you get the timing and location right, you can get some really unique shots.

A transit of the sun or moon is on my "to do" list although not at a high priority. I'll wait for one to come to me, than me go to find it. And even then, it is always subject to weather conditions.

Like lots of astrophotography, it is a bit of a "me too" shot now since everyone started doing it.
