Using email from CALSKY.com I was able to set up all equipment and by prepaired at the correct time of transit. I captured an AVI of about 1800 frames at 10 frames per second. The transit lasted about .8 seconds so only 7 frames were stacked using Photoshop. I think an article on Calsky in Sky & Telescope would benefit many of your readers. Thank You Thomas Fretz
