seeing its, its last ever flight I thought I would have a bash at trying to photo it which isnt
easy as im in the middle of a town with tons of light polution.
first night I didnt get the tripod set up in time...the wiggley line on the left is the shuttle, the one on the right is the ISS its docking with lol




so day two,tripod set.....just take a few star shots to see what Im picking up










then the time hitting 7:42pm right on schedule here comes the shuttle discovery






so for a first attempt with a bright orange street light beside me Im thinking not too bad.
If you want to see the shuttle or try to photo a satellite go here for fly over times.
