         Yes, that's a superb bit of filming.  Is anyone planning to catch the 
         Shuttle and ISS with a telescope?  Or MIR and Progress?  I'd be 
         interested to hear (I will be attempting the shuttle myself).
         
         I did catch MIR in my 8inch reflector a month or so ago - 
         unfortunately I couldn't get it at a decent elevation (far too fast 
         for me!), but got it at around 20 degrees up in the East when its 
         apparent motion had slowed appreciably.  Sadly it was so far away by 
         then all I saw was a small orangey blob with a 20mm lens.
         
         Clear Skies (please!! - STS launch tonight!),
