Following our article on photographing the International Space Station, here are some stunning ISS pictures from all over the world.
The image above was taken by Ian Parker on August 21, 2011 from the Isle Of Wight in the United Kingdom. He used an Olympus E-450 with standard kit lens of 14mm Focal length, 3.5 Aperture, 50 second exposure, manual mode and focused to infinity with no flash. Here the link to more amazing images by Ian.

Robert Sparks captured this image of the International Space Station pass from the foothills of the Catalina Mountains in Tucson, Arizona on February 11, 2012. He used a Canon Digital Rebel Xti camera with Sigma 10mm fisheye lens at f/3.5, ISO 400 and a 20 second exposure. A car drove by during the exposure producing a nice little streak of light on the nearby road.
This photo was captured by Darren Griffin on February 23, 2012 from his garden in Hampshire, UK.
“I used Panasonic G2 with a 20mm lens, tripod mounted. It took me a while to spot the track as it was directly overhead and I was looking in the wrong place! Once spotted I just kept snapping 15sec exposures until it passed out of view.”
This photo of the International Space Station and the last Discovery space shuttle to be launched (STS-133) was taken by Rob Cruickshank on March 7, 2011 in Toronto, Canada. Rob used a Sony Alpha 100 camera with a 28mm lens, 8 seconds at f11.
This image was taken on October 26, 2011 from Eoropie, Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides by John Gray. John used a Canon 1000D, 18mm, ISO1600, F3.5, 10sec x 22images stacked.
“The reason I only used 10sec shots was due to how bright the sky was at that time, then I could stack them and still keep the image dark and pull the ISS out of the sky.”
Here’s a link to John’s website:
This image is made up of 4 stacked images captured by Corinne Mills near Kilmany in Fife, Scotland. Each image is taken with camera settings as follows: ISO 200, f3.5, 30 seconds. The images are then stacked using StarStaX software.
Stu Atkinson was able to capture the Moon, Venus, Jupiter and the International Space Station, all in one great picture. The image was taken from Kendal Castle.
Chris Loncar took this photo when the ISS was passing over the Indian Trail in North Carolina. He used a Nikon D80, 52.7 sec. exposure at F/5.6 with ISO 640.
