Details:
Dr Phillips, I had a fairly favourable ISS transit against the Sun earlier today since the ISS was at a range of 481 km just after midday. The only problem was the fact the transit was to graze the northern solar limb and which automatically made the hunt quite complicated. I am delighted to provide you with the successful result and which was taken during windy conditions (five beaufort winds) and with very thin clouds overhead. The image was taken with an image scale of 0.68"/pixel, 2400mm effective focal length using my AP160/f7.5 StarFire EDF refractor and a Canon EOS 5D DSLR. Further details in relation to this result at http://www.perseus.gr/Astro-Sat-Trans-2011-03-23.htm . Thank you for your consideration and best wishes from Greece. Anthony.
