No, I did not actually take these images this time, but I found them to be so spectacular that I had to go ahead and post them as the image of the day. I was forwarded the information on these photos taken by those on the ISS and the Space Shuttle on their last mission. The detail on the full size images (see link below) is just incredible, so if you would like to see them in their full version just click on the link below. [For the images in one PDF click the NASA Endeavor PDF or for full size photos just click on the images]
If I can find any more data about when the images were taken and with what equipment I will post it here. I know that NASA uses a wide variety of Nikon and Canon digital SLR equipment and lenses from the images they take when they first arrive in orbit, but I don’t know body type, lens focal length etc. on these. 73, KI4WLR
These are just a sample of the images shown that were sent over to me, and I think the last picture is Hurricane Dean.
Update: These images were taken by Texas Jim and were originally located at
but that link is no longer valid, sorry.
