The Moon, Venus and the ISS


The Moon, Venus and the ISS (Out of focus)

This is the best of 3 lousy shots that I got. Unfortunately, I accidentally messed with the focus right as the ISS was approaching and this is the result. I did get all 3 in the frame, but they look terrible. Note to self: do not attempt to readjust the focus 5 seconds before an event.

  1. Heh,yeah tinkering with the focus as the event is about to occur isn’t a good thing to do.I have made that mistake MANY times!.I must give kudo’s on the attempt.I have had my scope for 2 1/2 years and have never tried a tracking shot of the ISS.

  2. It’s really a shame that we weren’t be able to see it in Toronto. The weather was going to be miserable. I have some good tips on how to view other crossings from our region, as well as some photos I took as it passed through the twilight sky this summer.
