OK, from this I now know that your hands are waaaaayyyy steadier than mine! I tried to get the ISS using my bridge camera and gave up, as it's got no manual focus option, and while the auto focus can cope with the Moon, or sunspots through a filter, the combination of the ISS being such a distant and such (relatively!) small object was just too much for it to handle. There's a lot of distortion from air turbulence too in the sequence of frames that one is taken from: That it's a double sided roughly rectangular shape, tilted (to my POV) at that angle, is consistent throughout, and what makes me content to share that shot as showing something of it's shape. But any finer detail than that I'm tempted to think I can see - no. It's a really challenging target.Very cool @StilLearning! I need to do the same with my new scope. Good go at the ISS too!
I did the same with my SLR with a 500mm Cassegrainian lens and a 2X multiplier. By free hand! Talk about hitting a small moving target. I'll have to look for it and if I find it, I'll PM you. It came out a little blurry. Seems Infinity focus on the lens means just that! 1000K of less is too close. Go figure.
