ISS Transit on May 10th

A friend of mine invited me to observe the ISS transiting the solar disk on 10th May from a parking lot in Budapest. The clouds were passing constantly but we were lucky and could capture the event.

The image attached was taken with a William Optics Megrez 72/432 refractor, a Herschel's prism (with ND1.8 filter) and of course your excellent DMK 41AU02.AS camera. Exposure time was 1/8000 sec. The image was processed in Registax and Gimp.

Thanks to Péter Molnar (Budapest, Hungary) and his friend for this amazing animation!
