    Thank you for your comments on the observation. The appearance of the spacewalking astronaut and the robot Dextre are without doubt.
    Several frames were compared on equal visible detail and although the seeing deformes every single frames slightly, in all frames the
    same detail is visible. Coming up is an additional post-culmination observation in which I will include a raw frame as it is a real good one.
    To find out what the position of the astronaut was, and how the robotic arm was positioned and which part of the arm was in shade and
    which part in full sunlight, see the analyses on the linked page. The approach images, with the ISS and Shuttle seen from a different angle,
    helped greatly for identification as the plane of the robotic arm was seen from a more favorable angle and better illuminated then during
    Best wishes,

    Special for todays 50 years Human in Space; A PERSON & A ROBOT seen from Earth. Since Yuri Gagarin, we have accomplished quite something. An even more Human-like robot was brought with to the ISS, but this one is inside (Robonaut).
    This result is one of my best resolution ISS images so far. The image shows also resolved detail within Robot Dextre and the ELC elements. Dextre (SPDM) is here still visible at its old location, before it was grappled by the Canadarm-2 later, see the other image sent today.
