Got this shot yesterday (27th) morning of the ISS at 06:00UT. We have another series of nice 'early' passes' to look forward to Wink If you look closely you will see The Beehive (M44) at the top and another satellite just right of the TV mast. This is a single 10 second exposure with a 50mm 1.8 lens and ISO 1600.

Here's another from the same morning.

Very nice images John! I always like to see an image of an early morning ISS pass as so few are up to catch it.

Orion looks fantastic. M42 and the Flame really jump out!

Thanks guy's! I think you're probably right Paul about M48, it looks like the right place anyway, then as you know I'm not really a deep sky observer Wink

Martin - there is something about those early morning passes' it's a special time to be observing!
