Hi all
:jump:Too excited to go to NASA.gov and look up the layout...I wonder if that's the bottom surface of the shuttle there, bottom center? Too bad the solar panels were nearly dead on :( Mighta been a real lucky catch!
Thanks for input!

Looks great either way! Very clear and well exposed!

Did it dock yet?

Oh yes the shuttle is there. It is attached right in the center. Can see it quite well in the picture. Great work!

Thanks all. I swear I can see the cargo doors open but that would mean it docked with the door facing outward. I wonder if its possible its docked differently to facilitate assembly of the last solar panels. I know the robot arm just barely reaches far enough to do it so I wonder if its docked that way to gain a few feet of reach or i'm just seeing things lol.....hope someone gets a better image as I got no more overflights with good weather till the end of the month :(
