This is great. I haven't checked if the event will be visible from my site, but we do almost have the same coodinates.

Not to insult your intelligence, but the best way to do this I'm thinking, is to start shooting video of the sun just before transit and grab single frames after. I've got a digital video hookup I can try.
I'm going to probably use my ETX 90 that I photographed the Venus transit with. Too bad the ISS will be zooming across instead of crawling like Venus did.

Thanks for the heads up!

That'a along the lines of what I was thinking Bill, using a web.
Calsky didn't show a transit for me, it must be a narrow ground path
