I did another night-time time-lapse the other evening, when the ISS was going over.

Unfortunately...

My sense of direction (and, to be fair, the compass on my iPhone) let me down, and the camera was initially pointing in the wrong direction.
My angle estimation was way out - it seemed to be a lot higher in the sky than I had aimed the camera!
My focussing skills are letting me down. I have found that the 'maximum' focus on my lens seems to be slightly further than infinity OMG | :OMG: so I have to manully focus just a bit short of the lens stop. I got it wrong, so the photos are all somewhat blurred.

I moved the camera as soon as the ISS appeared, so at least got a few frames with it in!

I left it going after the ISS departed, and when I looked at the photos, saw that I had also captured a UFO (it was, I am sure, a shooting star, but as it was so blurred all I know is it went from out of the field of view to below the horizon in < 45 seconds (it is on three frames, each with a 15 second exposure) - but that sounds like a long time for a meteor!

Perhaps it was :alien: checking up on me
