Arguably one of the most interesting images of ATV we’ve ever received! Here is the final submission in the fabulous ATV Orbital Photo Contest, sent in by Don Thomas, Surrey, UK.
I was really interested when I read that there was going to be an imaging contest as I have been fascinated by the fact that men and women are actually living in space and orbiting around our planet. I still can’t really believe it. I was fortunate enough to get some pictures of ATV-3 on its way to the ISS and the image is a stacked montage of these pictures, which I would like to enter in the contest. These were all taken with a DMK21 camera and a hand-guided C9.25 telescope. The caption I would give this picture is ‘Space Moths’ – I’m sure you can see why I think that is very appropriate. Good luck with ATV-4 – I’ll have my camera ready again!
