So a personal sci-fi project involves CGI and spaceships, both on orbit and in interplanetary space. I'm curious as to what the set-up is for NASA and ESA when they shoot in space, I know IMAX is involved to an extent.

A first, brief googling turned up nothing in depth. I plan to google some more, but I also imagine someone hear could point out some more esoteric or anecdotal info...

I'm looking to recreate the look that these real world shots from NASA/ESA have in order to help with the suspension of disbelief as the writing is what I would call 'extrapolatory' sci-fi...

I'm curious as to both film and HD video that they use, lenses, filters, cameras, filmstocks/codecs, tricks for exposing and fighting the earth's albedo..etc..

any help is greatly appreciated....
