    hi all,
    I also have taken a picture of Soyuz with my telescope, it's easy to 
    recognize the body and the solar panels:
    and also a lot of other satellites with different shapes and 
    You think it's nice? Thank you, but I have to tell you the truth: 
    these images are not satellites, it's just a star: Vega. More 
    explanations on this page:
    Of course Ralf, this concerns all your other satellites images, 
    including the images of the ISS where you claim records of astronaut 
    during EVA and Cupola's windows...
