ISS Pass

This International Space Station (ISS) was set to pass overhead at 19:08 on the 10th February 2016, so I set the camera up to take multiple exposures to create this long trail. My plan was to catch the pass from start to finish. However, I misread the altitude details and was a bit surprised when the ISS went flying out of the top of my frame! The final image, combined in Photoshop, is pleasing though. The other dimmer trail intersecting the ISS trail is a satellite. There are also plenty of interesting constellations on view, including Cassiopeia, Orion, Taurus and Auriga.
