Actually it's on Solar Panels.

The ARISS VCH1 project will only run on Batteries.
The MarexMG SpaceCam1 project runs on a Laptop and uses grid power from the Solar panels.

When you see big letters NA1SS, it is running on the VCH1.
When you see the Call sign and time Stamp at the bottom of the image, it is running MarexMG SpaceCam1.

It looks like they may have figured out how to use the USB camera AND SpaceCam1.
Please keep posting the images and sending copies to Marex at sstv at issspacecam.org.
