Better viewing for ISS & Shuttle over Ireland, July 20th

Weather conditions were more favourable for viewing the ISS & Space Shuttle over Waterford & Ireland in general (my family in Naas watched on also with very good viewing). The event started at 10:33pm and ended at 10:38 – although not as bright as previous evenings it was spectacular.

I took an 8 second exposure of the event which is shown below – There are still some viewings remaining on Tuesday and Thursday this week.

Photo Note : If I was taking the shot again however I would have used f4.5 – 8sec as the f8 – 8 sec was too low light. (ISO 200). If I get a chance Tue or Thur I might post a clearer image.
