Ever seen the ISS cross the sky at dazzling speed? It’s a fantastic sight! Why not try and capture it?
Here are some tips!
If you have a smart phone, I use the ISS Detector Android App to alert me!
Setting up the camera: Try and focus on a bright star – using liveview zoom can help.
Set the shutter speed to 15 or 30 seconds (Even use bulb mode if it is a long pass)
If it is very dark outside, you could set the ISO to between 400 and 800. Try a few pictures before the ISS turns up so you can adjust the settings before hand!
If you do not have a DSLR and instead have a point and shoot and a tripod, don’t despair! You could still manage to get the ISS.
Some models of point and shoot cameras have a shutter speed up to 8 or 15 seconds. You can also stack your photos using Startrails to stack several photos taken with your point and shoot!
