First ISS photo

Well, I've managed to get a picture of the International Space Station as it passed over Bonaire last Thursday evening.

I was hoping to see it cross right over the bright star Spica. It missed Spica by a teeny tiny bit, but it did zoom across the field of view of the web cam attached to my Meade ETX 90.
The web cam caught three images of the ISS as it zoomed by. This is a composite of two of them. No you can't click on this one to see it bigger. It is a teeny tiny picture of a teeny tiny object. :)

I hope to get better images in the future, but I'm really happy to have gotten any image at all at this point.
