Telescope : CGEM DX1100 (280mm, f/10)
Barlow x2
Camera : DMK 51AU02.AS

Taking high resolution images of the ISS is quite difficult. Because it’s travelling at a speed of 28000km/s. Add to this it’s apparent size, magnitude and speed are changing during the pass.
To take this photo a used a C11 with a DMK51 camera, focusing and all the settings should be set up before the pass. The total focal length was about 6000mm.
The main diffuculty is the tracking, in my case I tracked the ISS manually through the finderscope.
