That is insane!! Incredible work!

 

EDIT: Out of curiosity, do you manually track the telescope or is it automatically tracked?

Amazing! I've been thinking about doing this, myself. I too would like to know if you manually track it, I'm guessing you are. Any tips on fps and exposure would be welcome too. Well done.

Tks guys

 

For tracking I use a 10 Micron Mount (GM2000QCI) with internal software that let you to track ISS during its transit.

But you need to have manual correction  too with the keypad.

 

Consider in the past I had a lot of problem with this 10 Micron, now finally resolved.

 

I usually shot ISS at a high frame rate  80/100 frame for second.

You guys never cease to amaze me. I understand that is one of the hardest targets and you made it look like a model sitting on my desk.

Outstanding indeed. When I saw this in AB, I was just stunned at the quality. Probably the best ISS amatuer image I have seen till date bow.gif
