Hi Andy, the exposure time I used is only 30secs, I normally take around 200 plus images and then stack. Agree regarding the lack of posts it all went very quite so I stopped posting shame really because I really enjoyed the time here. I did start my own small forum and a few members here joined, if you would like to join the link is here

Glad you liked my website keep in touch

Martin your thoughts / opinions and expertise would be welcomed, any ideas what this was if it was a Fireball or Comet what ever it was I have never seen a sight like it so bright, large and appeared low in the sky.

Whilst setting the camera for imaging the ISS I witnessed an extremely bright Fireball at around 21:45 BST 21/08/2011, direction of travel from the South to NW, It appeared to increase brightness and dimmed before my sight was restricted by the woods. Apart from an amazing sight I thought this was very low in the sky and looked very big. I have attached image I took of the ISS and if I was imaging at the time of the crossing it would have been captured.

Did anyone else see this ?

Yep looks miffed  Angry, great image Mark, lets hope she gains a smile again soon  Smiley

Thanks Mark & Richard, I agree Richard the focus points did not work across the image will need to revisit this next time. The image consists of around 50 images at 30 seconds each and then stacked to create the trails. Hope your move goes stress free and catch up with you soon.

Should have washed her first.

Not a brilliant image of the ISS tonight through the clouds and Altair, hoping the sky will clear for the next transit due at 11:27PM.

Hi Richard, I would shorten the exposure time to around 30 seconds, so try using f/2.8 f/4 and ISO 800 1600 this should help reduce the noise. Your off to a good start though there very creative images.

What settings did you use for these.

Well done Mark, the proms may hang around but Im sure the clouds will hang around for longer  Sad should be clearing by the weekend though  Grin

Thanks all for the comments will go for the same setup again soon, I lost half the images taken because of dew forming on the lens so I have just made a heated dew shield in true Blue Peter style  Grin

Great location Richard you could never get tired of revisiting a stunning location such as this. The first image is crying out for a 10 stop filter to capture the ocean swirling around the rocks.
