    Beautiful, it seems the pics are getting better and better.
  • Peter Caltner 4y

    sweetgazer Practice makes perfect! The quality also depends on other conditions like orbital position, almost top down like the above one is very good for such night shots. 200 mm lens as here is already an additional challenge for focusing. Viewing from an angle, NASA term for this is high oblique (abbreviated HO in the database), is much trickier for getting good results. In order not to waste photo opportunities two astronauts are taking pics of such targets, the best shot is picked for posting then.

    European Space Agency Thank you for that comment. I have not found a copyright disclaimer formulated so unambiguously on various ESA sites.

    I think the ESA mislabeled it as Karachi on their site.
