I used Meade SC 10" OTA 2X barlow with Orange Filter on a Skynyx 2.0 M @ 66 FPS with Emmanuel Rietsch Tracking System modified into my EQ-G Mount. I am the only one in the USA that as this Tracking System.


On 10-02-13 Iss and Cygnus Spacecraft passed at max 53deg. over my home in Manorville, NY USA. I made to images into one telling image. Video I recorder can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrxztF3iUAs also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oyMZkbtMVk is my other video of Cygnus 9-29-13 just before ISS with Canadarm took hold of Cygnus. Videos are a must see. I think I am the first to image before and after Cygnus docked to ISS in the world as an Amateur astronomy. My dream is to get in S&T. BR Philip
