The Sun and Atlantis
It's amazing to see this photo and magnitude of the Sun versus Orbiter Atlantis.
This image was made before Atlantis and the crew of STS-125 had grappled the Hubble Space Telescope. The photographer, Thierry Legault, made this image using a solar-filtered Takahashi 5-inch refracting telescope and a Canon 5D Mark II digital camera. Definitely check out his website for more of his astrophotography work! http://www.astrophoto.fr
