The International Space Station crossing the Sun, taken September 15 near Sharon, Georgia. This is a combination of 13 of the video frames. The ISS crossed in 0.9 seconds. The mount refused to power up, so I had to manually aim the scope with the clutches, about 1 minute before the transit, and then focus. Lucky me, I hit the record button just in time!
