imaged the ISS (Bradford)

For a long time I have wanted to image the International Space Station while David Saint-Jacques was aboard. The very clear skies around dinner time encouraged me to try.

ISS flying over Ontario

Canon 40D, battery grip, Rokinon 8mm fisheye, manually focused, f/5.6, ISO 250, 120 seconds, daylight white balance, RAW, tripod mounted, Canon EOS Utility, no tracking, lots of hot pixels, Digital Photo Professional 3.8, WB tuned to 4200K.

Very happy!


This one's a bit better...

slightly enhanced image of the ISS flyover

Dropped WB to 4000, bumped contrast, dropped shadow, bumped saturation.


I like the little bit of trailing in the stars, when you zoom in. It emphasises, I think, the long duration.
