ISS 2014 #2

Last night’s second try of capturing the ISS looking directly to the East – this was more difficult to process because the sky was more hazy than before. The light pollution is not really so bad in this direction, it just looks like this because I brightened up the image a little. Because of the portrait orientation, the sensor noise hotspot is now in the lower left corner, where it’s not so annoying. This is another 128-second exposure with the Canon Powershot S5 running CHDK, showing that you don’t really need super-expensive gear to take this kind of photo.
