Post by PDB » Sun Aug 09, 2020 8:41 am

Hi,

Passage of ISS in front of the Sun. ISS size was 57" (but transit less than 1 second) so a good oportunity. (despite heat-wave temperatures)

120mm f8.3 with ND3.8
For maximum details, pls view at full resolution.

I use the ASI178MM. The small pixels are a good match with the f8.3 scope.
