    How about clicking on the link posted initially beneath each individual photos where It will further lead you to a copy of the full resolution photo. Though camera shake is evident in the images at 100% resolution due to the low shutter speed used, nevertheless they are still rather remarkable IMHO.

    These photos are amazing. Really love the one where by you can see the settlements that cluster around the Nile River.

    It doesn't look like alot of camera shake considering it was taken while travelling at an average speed of 27,743.8 km/h with 1/4 shutter speed -.-. And the last image is quite clear ...

    I think a 2 sec exposure is also possible, don't really need D3s to make this possible. Or they could have used a fast f1.2 lens. But its still awesome what the camera can do.

    Can't recognise the other 2, but the 2nd one is North Africa. The lights along the Nile lead up to Egypt and the Nile Delta. You can see the Red Sea on the right, and beyond it, Saudi Arabia.

    What strikes me here is how big and empty the Sahara is!

    In comparison to the preceding post above, this was taken with either a Nikon D1 or D2Xs (NASA camera field value designation: N1 and N2 respectively) just 2 years and 11 months ago.

    Final flight of the Space Shuttle Endeavour (OV-105) and also first photo of any space shuttle docked to the (now completed) International Space Station (ISS) from the vantage of another spacecraft.

    As taken by ISS Expedition 27 'MagISStra', European Space Agency (ESA) Italian astronaut Paolo Angelo Nespoli in the departing Soyuz TMA-20. The Nikon D3x and lenses used was thereafter left behind in the unshielded orbital module (crew are seated in the descent module) of the Soyuz TMA-20 to be burned up during atmospheric re-entry.
