Interesting things – Astronomy night 7/14/10

I took my scope out into the front yard to look at the Moon, Venus, Saturn and Mars as well as wait for an ISS passover.

Soon after dark I was able to get a good shot of the Moon and Venus together. Click through for larger versions.



A through the eyepiece shot of the Moon.



And finally, a shot of the ISS passing beyond the house. I got several shots but they all show a bit of movement at the beginning even though I thought I’d set a shutter delay.



Fun, fun, fun.
