    • Thanks Devashish!

      I hope in the future I could post here some instructions for a DIY telescope. I encourage you to subscribe to a YahooGroup called “atm_free”. Just search it over the Internet. Lots of good folks there who are experts in amateur telescope-making :)


  1. Nice work. Just started trying here in the North Las Vegas Nevada USA area. I am using a Celestron C8 from the mid 80’s and a D700 Nikon.

    • Hi TOMT,

      Thanks! This shot was taken by manually pointing the telescope at the ISS with the help of the finderscope’s cross-hair.

  2. Hello,
    I just saw ISS myself an hour ago,and kept on looking for more photos of it.
    Then,I stumbled upon this!AMAZING!!!

    I am on the other part of the world,and this will probably have no value for you to hear,but
