ISS Pass in 8" LX200-ACF Telescope

This is a short segment (14 seconds) showing what it is like to video record a pass of the International Space Station (ISS) in a telescope. The AutoStar handles the bulk of the tracking but some manual corrections are required, as you can see and hear in this video. The video was made using a Nikon D7000 DSLR at prime focus + 3X TeleXtender on the Meade 8" LX200-ACF. This pass was not ideal as the station was a long ways from my location in its orbit.
