10 inches skywatcher dobsonian f4.8 which was mounted on an AZ-EQ 6 GT, CMOS sensor: ZWO ASI 178mm cooled with a peltier module and water circulation. unbranded Chinese white light filter (it seems that they have used Baader Astrosolar film)


The ISS orbits planet earth, sometimes it passes in front of the sun or the moon, you just have to know when and where to look for it. i was very found of great sunspot AR2673, so i thought it is a good idea to capture an image when ISS is going to visit this sunspot, then i drove around 100 kilometers to arrive at my destination near Persepolis and set up my equipment.
