    Useful page.
    
    I have succeeded in capturing the ISS with Mars also in the frame using an
    old Minolta A5 handheld with 100ASA 35mm film at f2.8 at 1/500.  So it can
    be done if you do not have sophisticated equipment!
    
    Unfortunately I have not been able to scan the photo yet but hope to do this
    in the next day or so.
    
    Has anyone photographed an ISS pass simultaneously with an Iridium flare?
    
    We had a simultaneous pass predicted this morning with similar azimuth but
    the ISS was not seen owing to too much light interference, and even if it
    had been visible the separation between it and the flare would probably have
    been too great for a picture.
