Nice images, regardless of whether they're composites or originals.

fwiw "He used a Canon EOS 500D and an i-Nova EDTF 102 Triplet optical instrument, a special lens designed for astrophotography, to take the pictures."

The questions is how to keep both the plane and sun/moon sharp at the same time? Or at that distance DOF covers it all?

My question is how is he able to know just before a jet is about to cross that tiny field of view?  You certainly don't have much time to see one coming, and I imagine they're pretty difficult to see, especially at night.

There will always be doubters concerning the authenticity of images. Some of the doubts will be justified but some of the doubts will be in fact plain jealousy because somebody has captured an outstanding image that the critic didn't or have the ability to do? I liked the images without having any "suspicious" thoughts going through my mind.  :)

Plain luck or the burst mode in the camera?

Ah, I always wondered what an ideal Peter Lik's client would look like! Bella Luna is waiting for you. ;)

Plain Luck for Airplanes but if you want to get the ISS passing in front of the Sun or Moon then there is a page on the Internet which informs you when it is going to happen,

https://www.calsky.com/

Create an account there and it will inform you one day ahead when that happens.

Bear in mind that the transit of the ISS in front of the Sun or Moon (they both have the same apparent size in the sky around ~30 arcminutes = half degree) when it crosses exactly in the widest part takes only 0.5 seconds  ;D so you need a fast camera  :o
