Daylight ISS pass over Mississippi
« on: September 06, 2014, 04:07:51 PM »
10" Newtonian f/4.5 on an AP 900GTO
20140905 (YYYYMMDD) 0753 to 0803 A.M. CST
TIS DBK41 on Firecapture v2.4.5
FOV = 18.5x14 arc-min
Recal and focused on Aldebaran
Satellite Tracker v2.5.1
Sun in East (94 degrees AZ) at 17 degrees Alt
ISS approach from SSW at 221 degrees
Maximum ISS elevation 70 degrees in SE
Captured ISS on 700 frames

Could not see the solar panels on approach from SW this time.  Each pass is different.
Solar panels became visible after meridian flip in the NE and then trees.

Split AVI into 2 parts, approach(SW is mostly treeless) and departure(NE and lots of trees)
Processed both parts in PiPP v2.3.8 and recombined in VirtualDub v1.10.4

Comcast dropped hosting all webpages
AVI is a 7.3MB download.  5 second playtime is not available anymore.
Does not exist anymore

New ISS WebPage with 4 ISS pass movies

That is really nice work! I never had any luck with  daytime passes unless I was between the Sun and the ISS.
