Thierry is an amazing astrophotographer, always pushing boundaries.
This incredible image of the Space Shuttle Discovery is no exception.

That's quite something. He images at 4500mm FL on a modified Takahashi EM-400 that he controls with a radio control and two joysticks (one for DEC, one for RA) for rapid tracking with the combination of a reticulated finder and a green laser. Pretty cluey bloke.
:eyepop: wow cool pics :thumbsup:
