Manorville, NY in My Backyard
Date/Time of photo:
My imaging configuration was an OTA Edge HD 14 ′′ telescope with an Baader Red 610 nm Longpass Filter - 1.25" on a ZWO ASI174MM (mono) camera and Baader Planetarium Carl Zeiss 1-1/4" Abbe Barlow Lens 2x. All on a custom built Orion EQ-G mount and custom software.
New Category = Spacecraft/ Satelles All images were from my backyard observatory in Manorville NY, USA.This is a composite image of the International Space Station that I imaged on 05-06-21 and the Chinese Space Station Tianhe-1 Core Module that I imaged on 05-19-21. Please Note: My imaging configuration was the same for both Space Station images. My imaging configuration was an Edge HD 14 ′′ telescope with an Baader Red 610 nm Longpass Filter 1.25" on a ZWO ASI174MM (mono) camera at full sensorI 1936 x 1216 and Baader Planetarium Carl Zeiss 1-1/4" 2x Barlow Lens. This is to scale and would look like if the two Space Stations were flying side by side. I think I am the first amature astronomer to get these high resolution images of the Chinese Space Station to make this composite image. The International Space Station and Chinese Space Station were imaged at the same height. I hope in time to get even better images to share. For know I have truly documented history with my images and for the space community. You can find more of my images on my FB page > https://www.facebook.com/philip.smith.5686 Kind Regards ALL
