Weather prospects were not good but noticed I had an ISS solar transit about 10 miles south of me.  Lucky enough to capture a video of the transit between clouds.  Transit lasted about half a second and the ISS was 473km away.  Frames from video during transit stacked in Starstax and processed in Registax & Faststone.  Sorry I missed upper part of sun!  It only just fitted sensor and tracking was very non optimal!
