Capturing ISS lunar and solar transits is something I enjoy doing.  Normally I have to travel to observe them but this one was visible from back garden so I decided to operate two telescopes.  A little stressful but surprisingly they both captured it.  The ISS was 718km away and the transit lasted 1.08 sec.
