The Russian cosmonaut has shown the highest point of the Earth

Cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev in his “tweet” published a picture of Everest – the highest mountain on our planet. From space, it looks especially impressive.

Russian cosmonauts on the ISS regularly take photographs of the Earth and show the most interesting places from an unusual perspective. Many people wonder how you can take a picture of the planet from the space station. For this, astronauts use conventional SLR cameras, long-focus lenses and teleconverters, which allow to achieve maximum magnification. For some reason, I prefer the Nikon technique to the ISS.
