    Nice lazy 15 deg elevation  pass by ISS this morning in a brightening sky
    Jupiter was clearly visible , but the station only just naked eye...(mag 
    0.1) through the haze .
    Due to the separation , a wide FOV ( 4.5 deg )  was required.
    Equipment used , 40mm SLR lens with webcam
    30FPS @ 1/30 sec
