I was lucky enough to capture the ISS transit visible from near Bucharest, Romania today. In not one, but two photos. The event happened 2 hours after Endeavour coupled with the ISS, so the shuttle is also visible in the image. My first try at this kind of astrophotography but I'm really happy with the results.
