I thought I'd try my luck at an ISS shot :-). I accidentally bumped it to f/6.3 instead of the minimum f/5.6 :oops:. I was surprised that ISO 200 and 1/100th got me plenty of light. The ISS is pretty bright and as it passed from SW to NE, it passed straight overhead while I shot from my driveway in Manhattan Beach, CA. I shot both on tripod and then handheld when it was straight up. I think this shot (7:59:44pm) was handheld just after passing straight overhead. Gotta love that 500mmII +1.4xIII in front of the 5D4 :lol:. I must have cropped away at least 99% of the shot and then up-res'd it in Lightroom.

Very nice, Dave!

I'm anxious to try this with my mount that's capable of tracking it.

Looks like a few passes this week, but they're just after sunset so I may not have time to get properly aligned, first.

Here's the link to the site that shows you when and where to look for the ISS flyover relative to your location:

I think I see Commander Oleg Kononenko on the treadmill. :)


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.
