International Space Station – March 30, 2018

Scroll down to content

Yesterday, I had a favorable ISS pass occurring in twilight, and since I was planning to get out for some Moon shots, I’ve prepared myself for this event also. The scope used for imaging was the 4.5 inch Refractor with the fast ASI 174MM camera, while guiding was done manually using a 50mm finder scope. In total I’ve got the ISS in over 1500 frames, but mostly due to the low amplification factor. Next time I’ll try a larger magnification.

A lot of structural details are observed in the three processed images below: large solar panels, radiators, modules, and small solar panels on smaller modules 🙂
