A montage of images of the ISS covering an interval of about 18 seconds, beginning just after the lunar transit seen from my location. The sequence runs from right to left, and shows the changing appearance of the ISS and its solar arrays as the angle of view changes. The middle image of the sequence is also shown at 2x scale. Each image is a stack of between 45 and 60 frames, processed in PIPP and Registax. This was a more oblique view of the ISS than an overhead pass, which gives a better impression of the 3-dimensional structure of the station.
