ISS over Newcastle.

The International Space Station had a near perfect flyover on Sept 8th, from SW to NE passing overhead. So i had camera on 10 inch scope pre focused on a star, set expsure to 1/3000 sec ISO 3200 10 inch f5.6. Manually pushed the scope around while looking through the finder scope. Here are 2 shots. Taken with EOS Ra.

That's amazing. Did you take a video to make the photos or are they still shots? Focus is spot on.

Thanks all. They are single shots. It was dark enough to see a few stars so I focused on one, the 30x live view makes that precise. Maybe next time I should try video and stack a few frames but not too many as the angles change

That is impressive Scott. I've often wondered if I could track it on my EQ mount with the clutches loose. How big was your FOV? Did you use much magnification on the finder?
