ISS over Millmount

ISS over Millmount

A bit of time & effort went into taking this shot. It's all about the right equipment & planning. A quick check on http://heavens-above.com & a reminder by Denis Vaughan aka @inshin and remembering to bring my camera gear to our 1st camera club meeting back after the summer break. Then it was a quick check to see if the skies were clear & off I went to get the best position. The iphone compass was a great help as I could set up the camera knowing exactly where the ISS would appear. So I got a few stares as I stood there across from Millmount [Cup & Saucer] at 10:25 at night with a camera on a tripod, waiting for a space station to pass by. Thankfully, everything worked out well & I got this 105 second exposure. A lot of tidying up was needed in Lightroom as there was a lot of light pollution around there. Still nice & happy with the result.
