Great work! Thanks for posting. The animation works fine if I use Explorer, but it fails if I use Chrome. That seems to happen often on this website for some reason. Dont know if its related to which version of Chrome is used, but it looks good in Explorer. Keep up the good work.

Amazing! the animation is fine if you click on the larger image. Had the same problem with some of my own gif submissions on this site

Well done Szabolcs Nagy. I wish I had this ISS pass from my area at the time SpaceX Crew Dragon was Docked to ISS. You should get a lot more LIKES for this.People just do not understand was it takes to image an object traveling an 17,500 mph. You need good seeing weather and good sharp focus. I is not like pointing your telescope at the Moon. PLUS you imaged in COLOR :-) BRAVO! What was the the ISS pass 75° ???

Well done Szabolcs. I wish I had this ISS pass from my area at the time SpaceX Crew Dragon was Docked to ISS. You should get a lot more LIKES for this ISS image and animation. People just do not understand the ISS was traveling at 17,500 mph when you imaged it. You need good seeing weather and good sharp focus. It is not like pointing your telescope at The Moon that orbits Earth at a speed of 2,288 mph. PLUS you imaged in COLOR :-) BRAVO! What was the the ISS pass 75° ???

Thanks for all your comments! Yes it looks like animation is fine if viewed in full screen mode.
Philip sadly I know that most of the people not even aware if the ISS so it is a big ask to get lots of likes :) But I feel like it gives me even more encouragement to produce more easily understandable materials, proper explanations which allows people to engage, even if they dont follow whats going on above our heads.
This was an 85° flyby. Panels were visible up to the point it reached its highest elevation. Luckily for the animation I could use frames recorded before solar arrays faded away :)
Crew Dragons arrival is a huge achievement and Im extremely happy to be part of the history - from a viewers point of view of course. I know you took some awesome historic shots (BEAM, Tiangong-1), so you know the feeling. And to be honest Im not aware so far of any other photographer with a Crew Dragon photo ;)
Shame you didnt have flybys over your place, they could have been an amazing sight taken with your equipment! But lets hope this is just the intro to a brand new era - and Starliner follows very soon :)
