Discovering the Cosmic Void
“The International Space Station (ISS) takes a mere half a second to cross the solar or lunar disk. Photographing it usually involves travelling hundreds of miles and often, several failed attempts.”
The greatest joy of looking through a telescope, for me, is in the fleeting moment, like the ISS passing by, which is best visible when lit by the sun over the horizon. This shot was my 30th attempt, and the moon was highest in the sky, making the station appear larger, and much closer.
Why Multiple Photos Help
Usually, astrophotos may need you to stack several long exposures, but while shooting pictures like these, you would want to use the Burst mode instead, considering how quickly celestial bodies and space stations move.
