    Despite thin high cloud I managed to see the station today , mid afternoon 
    in a very bright sky.
    
    Conditions were'nt ideal , there was an upper layer of thin cloud above 
    10,000 feet , however I increased the FOV to about 7 arc minutes and gave it 
    a try
    To my surprise , there it was , captured in four frames.
    
    For the present , the video can be seen at

    The only down side is that my laptop clock had not been synchronised to GPS 
    and was showing 20 seconds fast  :O(
    
    The main array visible is the P3/4
