Getting the ISS in the frame that's the hard part with this kind of equipment - it moves *very* quickly compared to the size of the frame. Well done Mr Hooker!
This #ISS image was taken using a 250mm (10inch) Orion Newtonian telescope, Alt AZ mount, Imaging Source DMK web cam and software, 3 X Barlow lens and Registax processing software. The scope was guided by hand.
Great shot of the #ISS taken by a ground-based telescope.
nice job mr. hooker! if u don't mind me askin, what instrumentation did u use for that picture?
This is what the #ISS looks like through a telescope up close if you missed it tonight due to clouds.
VERY sweet shot of the #ISS Incredible to think this is ground based!

This is what the #ISS looks like if you can follow it with a telescope.
I can't even get a shot of the moon hand held without it looking like a banana - well done!
Wow. Just Wow. Tracked by hand? How is this even possible? Brilliant.
This #ISS image was taken with a webcam and 10inch Newtonian, tracked by hand!
Nice - given Chris's obvious hand-eye co-ordination abilities I suggest he takes up tennis :-)
