I captured both the ISS(Sept 25)and the ATV Solo(Sept 26)during favourable passes(ISS up to 89 degrees and ATV around 80 degrees).I really felt that the ATV was already in a considerably lower orbit,as it moves much faster;When you track by hand like I do,every difference in speed is obvious to you.It was not easy to get a good image of the ATV,but its elongated shape is good recognisable. all images taken using my 10inch Newtonian.
