    Hi Everyone
    I have posted new images of the ISS from 11 Decmber on my website.
    The new P1 truss is clearly seen as is the S1 truss and its radiator which
    turns out to be very bright. I have also included a screenshot from the ISS
    simulator program to help interpret the pictures. (the P1 truss is not in
    the currently available version of the simulator but it will be soon
    together with new features designed to help frame matching)
    Looks to me as though your images show the S1 cooling radiator. Pretty
    remarkable given all your telescope problems! Not sure about the truss
    itself though.
    I'll send you a few screenshots from the simulator to hep with your images.

    Look out too for the
