    My attemps so far have been a big bust. Last night I gave up with Satellite Tracker and used the lazer I have to get ISS in the scopes field of view (1st time actually got pics in field of view). Used Cannon EOS T2i in prime focus (largest field of view) and pre focus on Venus. Set the camera for highest def video. All I could get is a blurry image and the camera recorded .mov video. Virtualdub will not load .MOV video to remove the blank parts from the video and have no idea on how to get the focus right.

    That's pretty decent for what is an extremely difficult target. You can see the basic shape. Well done!
