Daylight ISS pass over Mississippi
« on: January 02, 2015, 05:56:47 PM »
10" Newtonian f/4.5 on an Astro-Physics 900GTO GEM mount

Recording time with ISS on sensor:
20141231 (YYYYMMDD) 4:29:29 to 4:31:10 P.M. CST
ISS was in the trees before and after the above time.

TIS DBK41 at prime focus on 10" Newtonian
FOV = 18x14 arc-min

FireCapture 2.4.06 Beta
Lossless codec: UtVideo RGB (ULRG) VCM

Focused and Recal on Vega

Satellite Tracker v2.6.1

Sun in West at +3 degrees Alt
ISS approach from NW
Maximum ISS elevation 71 degrees in SW

Captured ISS on 900 frames before meridian flip and then trees.
Processed manually in Registax 5 and shortened play time to 3.4 seconds in VirtualDub v1.10.4 with video>frame rate>Process every 24th frame

Got enough frames this time to see the ISS rotate.
The ISS passed by me on my right, their left.

You see the front-left of ISS on approach.
You see the bottom-left at max altitude of 71 degrees in SW for this pass.
And finally you would have seen the back-left on departure which was cut short by meridian flip and then trees.
