    Hi all,
    
    I'm due a daylight lunar transit by ISS in a couple of days time and subject
    to a change of orbit , bad weather , etc etc , want to try and grab some
    images.
    
    There are a number of problems involved , least of all the fact that it
    happens mid morning.
    
    I'll be using an 8 inch scope / webcam  with focal reducer  and wondered if
    anyone on the list had ever attempted to capture this type of daylight event
    ?
    The odds are stacked against getting anything on video , but I think its
    worth a go.
    
    The next day , I'm also due a solar transit.....so I suppose theres always a
    50/50 chance :O)
    
    I'd appreciate any tips .
    
    Thanks,
    
    john.
