    Ralf, you do not understand what I mean. I have no
    problem with orientation, it's obvious that the orbiter
    is seen from the top, the inside of the payload bay
    toward us (it's all the more obvious that I also have
    taken images -to come- of this passage).
    What I mean is that I see in your images a lot
    of distortions, bright dots and features that do not
    seem to correspond to something real. For example,
    the left edge of the payload bay should be
    straight, even and colorless, and not like in your
    image distorted and interrupted.
    So, sorry to insist but I really do like to see
    the raw frame and to know what sequence of
    and parameters of processing has been applied
    (I suppose that the image has been
    enlarged -perhaps too much for
    the level of real details- , sharpened
    or smoothed, etc.). I would also like to
    know what camera you have used.
    thank you for your understanding Ralf  :-)
