i know what ya mean. iv been practicing on aircraft with a friend, ill line up the spotting scope attached to my LX10 and my friend tries to view it through the main scope, we managed it with planes enough times but getting a glimpse of the ISS is harder than we thought, but when something is travelling at 5 miles a second, i understand why we fail!!

ill get on top of it one day tho, i will not give up!!

I did the video but,.. it didn't turn out exactly as I hoped. In the end, I do have a Dobsonian so it doesn't remain as still as it should.
