    Good conditions last night enabled me to take a look at the station with 
    Simonyi aboard.
    The clear air prompted an increase in magnification to about 500x  ( approx 
    3.5 arc minutes  FOV )
    This is on the limit of an 8 inch telescope , but the results yielded a 
    little more detail and can be be seen at
    Prominent in the early stages was the forward pointing radiator.
    The individual sections of the main array can also be detected.
