This time, it really was this morning — at 06:58 CEST. Thanks for an excellent view, Stéphane Colas.

This morning (Monday, 26 March) at 6h58 CEST, I captured another set of images of ATV-3. As there was a Japanese cherry tree on the trajectory, the result is surprising but confirms the very well known adage: “A swallow does not make a spring… but ATV does !!”
My equipment / settings for these new pictures
– EOS 350D Reflex Camera on tripod
– Full manual mode with anticipated mirror retraction and delayed triggering
– ISO 400
– Focal length: 29mm
– Aperture F/D=5.6
– 15s exposure
For the readers who would like to spot ATV and the ISS in the sky, their tracking data (time and position in the sky) are provided by the excellent website “www.heavens-above.com”, by just providing the current location (country and town).
