Docked Dissovery

Plus an additional bonus for the image space shuttle Discovery, docked to the station. Ted Judah (Ted Judah), who lives in northern California, has made the picture – one of 150, which he filmed for time of the iss at his observatory in the final STS-131 mission. Here is a description of Ted: ‘ISS entered the light of dawn over the Pacific Ocean just over the coast of northern California and headed for the north-east, he passed right over my observatory, located at sea level. I was lucky: there was no haze. I had a Canon 30D slr and Celestron 11 ‘Schmidt-Cassagrain on an equatorial stand.

I tracked the target by hand and used precision viewfinder to catch the target – when iss crossed the crosshairs sighting lines, I like crazy, clicked the shutter. Of the 150 images taken me, the iss was in a frame is less than half the shots. ” Ted told me that he was happy to discover that received such a clear shot. Nice work, Ted! Ted is no stranger among those who tried to take a snapshot of the iss. He won one of the ‘tridents Phil’ (Bad Astronomer Phil Plait (Phil Plait)) in the competition “Remove the universe (‘Capture the Universe’) camera Tselestron (Celestron), presenting the other a shot of iss. In addition, Ted, donated a pair of podcasts (podcast – a digitized recording or broadcast, posted on the Internet for downloading to personal audio players) in the Field of 365 Days of Astronomy (Astronomy 365 days), and one of my favorite podcasts – Ted’s story about how he and his family built a observatory on the farm in-law.
