    Hi Bram,
    I observed through flying cloud cover (see the picture), so I certainly may have 
    estimated it too bright. I estimated it to be fainter than alpha Aql (mag. +0.8) 
    but brighter than the other visible stars in the area, some of which wr behind 
    clouds though. I had not much time to assess the brightness however between 
    triggering the camera, seeing the Progress amidst clouds and then seeing it go 
    into eclipse.
    Luckily I quote a +/- of 1 mag in my reports...  :-p
