ISS 2017 #1

Yesterday evening was the first time since 2015 that I’ve been able to catch the International Space Station on camera flying over my location. It was one of the brightest passes I’ve seen for a long time and there might be more in the next couple of days – but this photo is actually pretty good already. I used the Canon Powershot SX30 with CHDK to make a single two-minute exposure and I’m astonished how good it looks! I will try it with the Sony Alpha 65 too sometime, but I haven’t yet got a remote for it that would allow longer exposures than 30 seconds, which is vital for this kind of photo.
