     Hello Thierry,
     First of all congratulations on the amazing images and video!
     I would however like to point out that, on the first image on your
    webpage, it seems to me that AMS is mislabeled. Since the station
    "flies backwards" when a shuttle is docked, and on your images
    Endeavour's tail is pointing outward from the page, the Starboard truss
    is pointed towards the bottom of the image. So your "AMS" label is
    actually pointing a the Port truss and at the ELC3 (also installed on
    STS-134) instead.
     More specifically, AMS2 has been installed on the S3 truss segment, as
    can be seen on the picture linked bellow:
     Note the Columbus module at the bottom of that picture (and not JEM, as
    it would have to be if AMS2 was installed on the Port truss).
     Again, thanks for sharing such amazing images. Keep up the good work!
    Best regards
