Well, I guess this is what you'd call a real bullseye. Interesting and thanks for posting.

Hello wink.gif

 

Thanks thanks James7ca, Cfreerksen

as well as everyone who liked grin.gif 

 

 

Yes yes

I was informed by a friend
that the ISS passed in front of the moon
and with Stellarium,

I saw that she was also passing in front of Uranus.

 

I do not believe it
but I have everything installed to image.

 

I almost missed the occult
because 40s before,
I checked all my settings again
and I was total in stress.

 

I raised my head
and when I saw the ISS,
I recorded and I screamed from screamed home
when I saw the ISS go on screen.

 

Then I opened my ser with PIPP and there,
I screamed again because the station was hiding Uranus.

 

Since then, I almost managed to do it with Jupiter
but it's missed.

I'll have it someday.

Looooooolllll

A NASA conspiracy?  What else might they be trying to hide besides one of the outer planets? shocked.gif

 

Nicely done!  That was excellent planning and timing. waytogo.gif
