ISS composite photo near Venus at daytime

Today was a hectic day. Early morning imaging was completely ruined by the arrival of unexpected clouds. The planned 8:57am ISS transit seemed to be in jeopardy. But I still did hit the road – and surprise surprise, clouds disappeared and suddenly I was good to go. Was only hoping to get something nice out of this event, eventually the result is more pleasing than previously expected.
I used my 10″ dobsonian telescope for the job with a Zwo ASI 120MM mono camera at prime focus.
Totally blew my mind, how much details can be seen on ISS. Note that this shot was taken at 8:57am – broad daylight!

Video I took during the event (I warn you too much excitement involved!)
