Solar transit of the International Space Station

Something I have wanted to do for years is to catch the ISS crossing the Moon or Sun. An opportunity arose on the  morning of 25 April 2018 as I had received a prediction from CalSky that the ISS would cross the face of the Sun at around 9:35 that morning. I had no idea of which part of the Sun it would cross and as my field of view through the my telescope with a Daystar Quark is quite limited it was going to be pot luck as to whether I pointed at the correct part of the Sun. I chose to point at the only Sunspot at that time and wow how lucky I was !!!

From the video I have made this still picture.
