    Default Got the ISS



    I finally got a few shots of the ISS. I was on manual focus and it looks like I nudged it off of infinity a bit, so it's out of focus. I realized it was coming in view only 10 minutes before it got here, so I didn't have much time to prepare. Taken with my Canon EOS 500D on a tripod. 30 seconds, f/5, ISO 400.

    CalSky said it was going to fly by again tonight at 6:34. I was ready and waiting, but never saw it. Oh well, the sky was kind of bright anyways. Tomorrow it will fly by at 8:00 pm. I'll be waiting.
