    There's an EVA in progress , Discovery is docked...and all I get is a
    daylight pass :O(
    However the persistant cloud breaks for a while....and the station skips
    across the sky like a saucer skipping across a pond ! ( Apologies to Mr
    Arnold...........did he ever really say that ! )
    
    
    Not as easy as it looks.....and to acquire the images I had to widen my
    field of view to about 6 arc minutes.
    ISS is shown in "reverse " mode , Jules Verne leading .....
