Today I had the pleasure of acquiring some ISS transit shots on a perfect weather and in a very nice location, somewhere in the woods around Targoviste, together with my wife.

We’ve mounted our gear and waited for the ultra-fast shape of the ISS to pass over the almost blank Sun. Only a very small sunspot was detectable, and this only in the few very good seeing moments.

The two setups were:

WIFE (full disc shot): Mak 127mm and Canon 550D on a Star Adventurer mount, HUSBAND (detailed view): APO 115mm F/7, Herschel solar wedge, 2.5x Powermate, ASI 174MM. My shots are mirrored due to the Herschel prism. Prediction via CalSky.

For a brief 0.8 seconds the Sun had two sunspots.
