    1. Hi Varun Das,

      Thanks a lot! We don’t usually get favorable ISS passes here in the Philippines :)

    1. 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.

    1. Hi TOMT,

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