18 Feb 2012. A very bright pass of the International Space Station (ISS) at 1806hrs. A difficult long exposure because of the ambient light having just lost the sun only half hour or so before. The ISS flew across the Orion constellation, so this was my composition guide (just left of spire), having chose my church location. Set camera on tripod and fine tuned the exposure time to 4s at F4, ISO 320. Captured with Olympus E5 & 8mm fisheye. Shot approx 80 exposures continuous and ran around the churchyard firing off isolated strobes. Stacked the frames using StarStax software. It was such a bright pass, made good by very clear skies after passage of a cold front earlier, combined with a polar airmass keeping the air cool and clear :-)
