Taking a break in my China series to post this image from last night of the Space Station (ISS) passing directly overhead, just past the moon and through Scorpio. Best to view large on black, there's also a note.

Wow, brilliant! I wonder how you managed to have the stars so clear and the moon not overexposed with 40 seconds- imagestacking?

Many thanks, Gudrun. I used the 'astrotracer' system in the K1 to avoid star trails. The tricky part was that the sun had set only about a half hour earlier and sky light meant I had to stop down but not so far that I lost the ISS trail. I then darkened the image and rotated to landscape. Here's the original, also showing some light cloud.

What a cool feature to have! As far as I could find out Pentax are the only ones to have implemented it.

Yes, Pentax are the only DSLR makers using sensor shift for image stability. What they have done is incorporate a GPS, then link that with the sensor shift to give the astrotracer control.

Pity all my gear is Canon;-) But then we have too much light pollution anyway...

The specs of dust and a scratch on my screen are in fact stars and a SS trail! Wonderful, and very clever, George. We always seem to have too much light pollution in our small village; and besides, I wouldn't be able to capture anything as good as this.

Thank you, Amelia. I'm rather lucky to be in a fairly quiet area with fairly little light pollution.
