Hi Friends,

I am new in this list and thanks for allowing me to be here.

I am sharing a picture of ISS transit that I have taken on 17th May 2014
from a location lat=26.101400 & lon=87.984298.

The optics was Celestron SCT 8" with Nikon D7000 at Prime Focus.
I have taken a Video too with Sky Watchers 120mm f/8 reflector fitted with
a HD Video cam.

Interestingly, despite being on centerline (Plus Minus 200 meters), I did
not get ISS to run through the center of solar disc. Instead, I had it pass
through a distance of at least 1/4 solar radii from the center of Sun.
Width of visibility path was 6km. I was following Calsky fro the
prediction. Could you please enlighten me on what might have gone wrong?

Thanks and regards-
