This image, taken by Mick Nicholls from Sheffield, UK, shows the International Space Station transiting the moon.  It was taken on 7th February 2017 at 17.45 using a 70mm IKI APO Refractor and a ZWO ASI120MM camera on an HEQ5 Pro Synscan goto mount. The image is made from the AVI captured by the ZWO camera. Mick extracted the frames using PIPP software and then he ran the frames containing the ISS through Starstax software and finished off in Photoshop CS2. The original video was captured at 30fps with gain and gamma set at 50.
