Unless this is recent than I don't think so. They do have quite a variety of camera lenses on the ISS though, of which includes long telephoto lenses.

I was sure I'd read about a telescope being taken up to the ISS.  I had in my head that it was a C8 rather than C9.25, but either one should be close :)

I can't find any recent imagery from that system though.  Perhaps it's an "experiment" that has now run its course?
