    It seems to me that the ISS should be visible thru a telescope before it's quite
    dark- the trick is in knowing when & where to look. So, for example, if you know
    a sunlit lunar transit will occur around sunset, the ISS should be visible
    except when it crosses the lighted side of the moon; and maybe even then, but as
    you say, the contrast would be low.
