Photograph the ISS by Hand With a $70 Telescope

by Alien Cosmos

On a budget? Wanna snap cool photographs of the International Space Station (ISS) by hand? We have a simple solution for you! No tripod required. No image editing. No fancy software programs.

Using a DSLR (you should already have a DSLR if you’re trying to capture high-quality photographs), an adapter ring, and a cheap telescope, I was able to capture images of the ISS as it passed overhead.

In this video, I used a Celestron Nexstar 90GT with a Sony A6000. Holding the telescope by hand I was able to photograph the ISS as it passed overhead. I’ll go into detail showing you how to accomplish the task yourself.
