    G'day, by sheer happenstance, on Sunday, 13th July, at 18:23 local time, the
    ISS will pass in front of the Moon, as seen from my front yard (Dapto, NSW)
    It will be at magnitude -2, and lit until about 18:24.57 as it continues to
    the East.
    Any suggestions for setups (I have my scope, and I'm SURE of the pass, and
    where the pass through the Moon will be).  My LPI will be too high a
    magnification to risk being off by a short bit, so I'm going with a DSLR
    mounted at the prime Focus Meade 105 ETX.
    Here's hoping.
