    wow now that was cool. I would have loved to had the C 11 set up when that happened now that would have been something else. Even the solar sails would have been visible. It would have felt like Halloween horror night for the moon

    Thanks everyone. I wasn't going to try the camera thing sence I didn't want to miss seeing it through the scope, then at the last minute I remembered I had the the spotting scope. I hit record and then went to the telescope. With the 20mm eyepiece I could make out the rectangle shape of ISS. I was able to manually track it and keep it in view all the way until it disappeared behind the neighbors house. Well worth getting up early.
