Not having very much luck here in my attempts to see ATV parked up behind 
ISS
Tonight I had a 60 deg pass , but 8/8 thin high cloud and patchy low cloud 
made imaging rather difficult.

I managed a few grainy frames at different points in the pass ,  the gap 
between ATV and Zvezda  was not that noticeable.
Best view was obtained through a small break in cloud when the two vessels 
were about 650 km downrange

The solar arrays on ATV were reflecting well
