The Shuttle and ISS in the same filed of view 40min before docking! Not an easy observation done just at time of sunset. Both were just separated in the finderscope looking like a close double star. 1/1000s 200 ISO, Canon Powershot A710 behind 16" Dobsonian (+30mm eyepiece) and manual tracking. Seeing fair to poor. Wednesday 18 november 16h12 UT. Second animation taken 1h34min later with Atlantis docked to ISS.
