    Hi,
    
    Considering my "image" of the ISS that I posted, I now believe that it's
    just a coincidence of camera shake that created an image similar to the
    shape of the ISS. It's very unlikely with the lens in use that I could
    resolve any detail at a range of ~500km!

    Good evening from a lurker in the south-west UK.... 
    
    I just sent this to John to confirm how good it was... I imaged the ISS on
    the same pass as John when it was just about to pass into eclipse to my
    east.

    The image is not that great, until you understand that it was a hand-held
    shot, taken with a Canon EOS-400 with a 55mm lens, 1600 ASA, F5.6, 0.6 sec
    exposure, and a small child trying to grab the camera at the same time! It's
    amazing what's possible!

    Cloudy again tonight , but this time the gaps were in the right place.In 
    fact the docked complex was so bright it was just visible through the cloud 
    layer , making it a little easier to track.
    
    ATV was bright and clear ,
