SpaceX Crew-2 capsule docked to ISS as seen through my telescope!

I captured ISS a day before the crew-2 launch and found that the forward docking port was free. Following the crew-2 launch, there's a Dragon capsule docked to the forward docking port. Oh, and I have footage of the crew boarding the capsule and not leaving it before launch too.

That's great! Thanks, Doc.

How come there's no outboard camera photoing the stars and moon, and the stupid craft itself? All we ever see are dumb 'scopetards and their National Aeronautic-aided dubious footage. Can anyone else see with a 'scope a football field 6 miles away? - let alone 280 miles away? That's about the size and distance of LIE-sis. Hoo-boy.

Amazing to get such pictures of an object travelling 17000 mph at a distance of 250 miles---you used your own program to set the telescope movement?

Oh, that inspires me to dig out my telescope to set up!

Have to go to part of the farm where am not surrounded w/ big trees so I can set up for open sky line.

Thx Doc, and yeah, like another commenter said, hope you live long enough to make the trip up there and be able to look back at our third rock from the Sun!

It would eventually if not for it's "Propulsion Module" (a set of thrusters).

The ISS requires an average 7,000 kg of propellant each year for altitude maintenance, debris avoidance and attitude control. A Propulsion Module would have provided reserve propellant for one year of ISS orbit life in case of supply interruption. A Propulsion Module would have been attached to the Unity node of the ISS.
