Clear enough to go for a 4-minute pass of the ISS last night. The beginning (left hand side) is missing as I started off pointing to the wrong bit of sky sad1 It was only when my son said "it's behind you" in true Panto style that I swung around and started imaging it. Very nice pass, very high up and very bright - but I can't say I've noticed the path being broken up into little bits like that before. Anyone know what's going on here - it was "bulb" setting, so effectively the "shutter" was open all the time.

Greg

Hi Lee - no problem - I've since found it's just an artefact of the downsizing (there are no breaks in the original RAW file).
