Hi folks,

More pictures from ISS this morning.  One blue-screen from the 15:29z pass, then two pictures out the window on the 16:00z pass.  The 17:41z pass (just completed) I almost turned off the rig after a silent pass, when one picture was sent right at the end (about 5 degrees elevation).  Still full quieting for most of the image, and I finally got the skew adjusted on my software (qsstv on Linux).  Pictures uploaded to the ARISS site.

While it's nice to see what they see out the window, I'd much rather have them turn the camera around and see the insides of the Station.  Is that possible to request?  Or, is the camera in an area of the Station where privacy would be a concern?

Thanks to all who made this possible.  My neighbors were by on Thursday during the morning school contact, and my wife turned up the volume so they could listen in (I was at work).  They were amazed.  And then to see the pictures, too.  What a cool hobby!

Thanks again,

Greg  KO6TH
