    $\begingroup$ You seem to have a habit of asking very basic questions while doing very little, if any research. Opening the webpages in the links you provided would have given you answers. The NASA website clearly states the ISS can be seen from one's backyard. It also states "The Space Station is one of the most visible man made objects in the sky". If an orbiting or celestial object can be seen with an unaided eye it can be seen via a telescope. More effort from you would be appreciated. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks Fred. I mean the ISS can be viewed using sophisticated Telescopes with more details & clearer as compared to with human eyes? $\endgroup$ Oct 20, 2021 at 6:51

    $\begingroup$ By simply searching "telescope ISS" or "telescope backyard ISS" you get lots of images, and even articles on how you can view the ISS yourself with a telescope. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Given that the purpose of a telescope is to see something in more detail than the human eye alone you've answered this already. This question has no purpose. $\endgroup$

You don't even need a telescope. You can see it with the naked eye.

Is it possible to view ISS using sophisticated telescopes from planet earth?

And per @GdD's comment:
