Space Station Flyover captured by Canon Powershot G1 X

International Space Station Flyover from Arlington, Texas on 5 August 2012.

This is a composite from four photos taken with my new Powershot G1 X. The composite is from four CR2 RAW photos which were combined and post processed with Photoshop CS6. (See camera setting details below.) Considering these were shot from a location with a huge amount of urban light pollution, I was able to pull out a lot of detail. The G1 X does a very good job of night sky photography!

I set up in my apartment complex parking lot located in the south central part of the Dallas/Fort Worth metro. You have to drive a long ways from here to see the Milky Way! (This s a reduced size.)
