Subject: Images with the Pentax K100D DSLR Camera Sent: Friday, November 21, 2008 15:38:16 From: Robert Zaballa (firstname.lastname@example.org) Hi Mike. As always, your website is awesome. I have attached a couple of images I took with the Pentax K100D DSLR camera and the SMC DA Pentax zoom lens. In the first image, the International Space Station (with space shuttle Endeavour docked) flew overhead the past couple of nights here in Woodstock, GA. With the zoom lens at 24 mm, I took an exposure of approximately 15 seconds with the camera's sensitivity set to ISO 400, on Nov. 20 at 6:13 PM EDT. The station appears as the trail moving from the bottom right (Southwest) of the picture to the top left. The second image, taken approximately 10 minutes earlier, shows Venus (lower right) and Jupiter (up and to the left of Venus) with the same camera and sensitivity, but with an exposure slightly less than 1 second and the zoom lens at around 45 mm. By the way, I received my Ph.D. in physics at Georgia State University on Nov. 11. Now, I'll have more time for astrophotography again. Thanks, -Robert Zaballa
