I knew I had several opportunities to catch the ISS in the vicinity of comet NEOWISE, but this night presented a very close pass right through the tail. When I saw I would have clear skies, I headed out to my favorite spot at the middle of a dam with relatively low light pollution and clear views to pearls the horizon. I would say I packed up my equipment, but it had already been in my car for the past week of comet chasing! The SkySafari Pro app allowed me to properly frame the comet in anticipation of the ISS pass. Arriving at the dam, I aligned the sky tracker and mounted the camera. After several test shots, I just set my remote shutter to take continuous 30 second exposures. This is a composite of three photos taken at 2:05 a.m. UTC Sunday, July 19 2020 (10:05 p.m. EDT local). I used a Canon T5i (crop frame) DSLR with a Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 lens mounted on an iOptron SkyTracker. Each photo was 30 seconds at ISO 400.

They were stacked using StarStaX and processed in Lightroom and Fast Stone Image Viewer. I was expecting the ISS and Iridium 68, but Iridium 74 was a surprise flare which hadn’t been predicted, then I got really lucky and caught the meteor as well! I saw the meteor visually so it definitely wasn’t another satellite.

The photo was taken from Oxfordshire, UK on 30th May 2017. I used a Canon 1100D with the 18-55mm kit lens + a Japan Optics fish eye wide angled lens attachment to give me a wider field of view.
The photo is a stack of four images:
3 x 60 seconds at ISO-1600 f/3.5
1 x 20 seconds at ISO-1600 f/3.5
