Hi Julian,

Thank you for the accolades!

Sadly, the orbit for AO-92 does not offer the chance for images over the
We are bound by the NOAA imaging license to control the imager only from
U.S. AMSAT Command Stations, so descending passes here have already come
from your side and ascending passes are headed for China and Japan. 
While the 40 minute timer does allow us to activate Data Mode (the
camera experiment) on an ascending pass at night here and capture images
over China and Japan in the daylight, that won't work for any passes
to/over Europe.
