  1. That is just amazing! How could you capture the ISS? Wasn’t it moving incredibly fast?

    Yeah it is moving fast! That transit took about 3/4 of a second!
    I was shooting just JPGs in the high-speed mode on the Canon 7D which shoots 8 frames per second. I started shooting about 15 seconds before the predicted transit and stopped about 15 seconds after. I shot about 320 frames of which 6 captured the ISS.
