    Thanks everyone, I think that I'm going to take some darks and combine them to make the noise not so noticeable.

    Just inserted 2 darks in layer in Photoshop; the first at 66% opacity, the second at 50%. Curves and exposure layers were used, as well.

    If you want to download it and use it for something, go right ahead. That's a complement to my basic astrophotography

    Geez having a closer look, that Olympus really has put out a lot of noise! Also I notice that the ISS trail and the stars look out of focus-like the focus slippeed.
    Interesting shots tho.

    ISS is a great sight. I saw it for the 1st time at a Star Party here in Miami, FL about 2 months ago. I captured on video through my cell phone. These pictures remind me how exciting it was to watch it RACE through the night sky. Thanks for sharing our experience. It's amazing what we've accomplished.
