How many Nikon DSLRs can you get aboard the International Space Station? Apparently it’s at least 10, as NASA astronaut Donald Pettit found out. He has an impressive collection of Nikons. Can anyone work out which models he has?

If you’re wondering how good his photography is, it’s pretty good as these pictures (which we think are probably the most impressive star trail photographs we’ve ever seen) demonstrate.
