ISS in the night sky

International Space Station (ISS) photographed with Canon SX50 HS
International Space Station got caught streaking across the sky

Tonight's clear skies gave me a great opportunity to photograph the International Space Station outright. I didn't know what settings to use, however, so I made a guess. It was okay when it was streaking across the western sky with magnitude of around -2. As it went south, it became brighter, and the shots came out a bit too bright.

Settings: Canon SX50 HS - 1200mm - ISO 250 - 1/400s
