Capturing Starman from Earth

February 15, 2018

Rogelio Bernal Andreo:

Astrophotography can be applied in many different ways. I utilize technology that allows me to capture ancient photons so that I can later process and create my own interpretation of the data captured, effectively blending art and science like not many other disciplines do, but I don’t usually track “small pixels in space” (aka comets, asteroids and yes, even spacecrafts) as some of my peers do. Yet, surely enough, comes the day when someone decides to launch a cool red car “driven” by a dummy in an astronaut costume, I had but to go for it! Yeah, red sports cars make even tiny pixels look cool!

Capturing the Tesla while it speeds through the night sky was no easy task. Read his entire post to see how he did it.

/via Space.com who didn’t directly link to his blog. Why do online publications do this? It is evil.
