ISS Lunar transit last night

Managed to get 9 frames of the ISS as it transited the moon last night using my Olympus EM1 MKII and 300 mm zoom lens. This is my first attempt at photographing the ISS and I'm quite pleased to have captured it given the transit was less than 1 sec duration. I've made an animation however I've got no idea how to post that here due to the file size so a still image will have to do. This is the first image in the sequence showing ingress at 8 o'clock

Good catch Peter - is that the ISS near the craters Hercules and Atlas?

Cheers

Hi Dennis, I've managed to upload an animation on youtube so it is easier to see the ISS:

Very nice Peter - thanks for the link.

I don't know how you managed to achieve this result, with the skies, smoke, cruddy conditions and storms of late.

Cheers

Dennis

Cheers Dennis and Rob. It wasn't the perfect night as there was some cloud cover however it was an experiment as much as anything else and I'm pleased I actually captured it at all. Next time I'll try with the telescope as 300mm focal length is a bit low to actually capture any significant detail.

Great shot/video Peter and I finally figured out that I missed this out by 1.5 seconds

Video looks great Peter

There is a lunar and solar cross over the next few days.

I might give it a go, hopefully the weather will cooperate

Cheers Geoff
