    Just back from my first ISS solar transit 0f 2006.
    What a disaster !
    
    The location was coastal...weather touch and go ,  I made the journey 
    anyway.
    On arrival  the wind was gusting 20-30 kts but I persevered !
    Almost impossible to fine focus due to the shifting image ..... result here

    The only positive side is that positioning ( apart from the constant 
    buffeting ) was spot on and the Calsky prediction was right down the line 
    :O)
