First attempt to photograph the space station (with Shuttle docked) - 6/10/2008
Canon XSi + EFS 10-22 @ 20mm
20 sec @ f/8, ISO100
As luck would have it, as I was setting up the camera, the evening fog layer began to form. It actually turned out for the better, as it added some color and interest to the shot. Just need to get a higher sensitivity to make the station brighter. The station was magnitude -2 for this overflight.
Looking at these photos, I should use ISO 200 or 400 and/or wider aperture. Longer focal length (28mm?) might be better too.
Also, it is just luck of the draw how dark the sky will be when the overflight happens. It would be better a little later after sunset, so there is better contrast between the station and sky.
