ISS Lunar Transit 26.08.2017 at Queensland Astrofest

G'day.

On the last night of Queensland Astrofest 2017 there was an ISS Lunar Transit. I held my Panasonic Lumix compact to the 25mm eyepiece on my Skywatcher 12" collapsable truss dob to capture it A-Focally while looking up to watch the 'live' view - so it is a little bit shaky. This is the first such transit I have seen, and it was exciting. (And my camera cost me AUD 17.00 from local Charity Shop).

Link to my Google Photos album of this video clip is at [hyperlink=]https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipPbKNN0KEAkGzhBOTLwGOq57H9V8NxEFKqSLI3yfR6toEENhuPkmj7Uu6ZJHj-Bdg?key=X0xFN3dqcDU5aXpCQjBPbTVqMU41a2pOWjcyTUJR[/hyperlink]

One fellow made a short Astrofest Timelapse video that includes several other captures of the ISS transit. It is on You Tube at [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFKeC9As-8Q/url]

Cheers.
