...and a nice ISS pass
Left image: The ISS passes Procyon (ASA 400, 15 secs exposure), Right Image: the ISS passes Sirius, ASA 200, 1 sec exposure (click to embiggen, you need to to get the detail).
So, there I am, walking up towards the beach with the camera and tripod to take shots of Jupiter and the Moon, when I see the ISS rising into the sky. So I stand there appreciating it, then I realise that the ISS will pass between Orion and Sirius, pretty close to Sirius, so I try and set the camera up. First I get an under exposure, then I get an over exposure, but I did capture it. And year, it looked pretty cool too.
