ISS passed overheard this morning.  I may have resolved the SpaceX Dragon Capsule - the little white dot indicated by the red arrow. What do you think?

It's clearly visible with a 13 Ethos and a 15" dob.  Very well done.  Do it again please.

 

How high was the pass and what was the equipment?

This is a video frame using a Celestron EdgeHD 8" with a ASI224MC and UV/IR filter. Exposure was .340 ms and gain 375 or close to that as I was adjusting during the pass.  My iOptron CEM60 mount was controlled by software I wrote (see signature line).

Great capture!

 

I need to download your software for my CEM60 and give this a try. :)
