    Hi Frank,

    Peter, that's a great photo! May I ask which camera you used and with what settings?


    Thanks---it was taken with a Canon 40D DSLR, Canon's 85mm f/1.8 lens wide open, 4 second exposure, ISO 800.

    No sidereal tracking, just the camera sitting on a tripod, so the stars are a bit trailed.  Also the image is cropped to center the objects of interest.

    Here's the TLE of the satellite at the time:

    ADEOS Rocket

    Cheers,
    Peter
