If the ISS is 347 km height and under optimal circumstances (passed  directly 
overhead), and had a cross sectional length of 72 meters, that  would be 
about 43 arc seconds, about 23% (one dimensionally) greater than the  diameter of 
Jupiter at the moment.  Can you resolve anything on  Jupiter?
Saludos, Doug

was  hoping to tap into some of the observing experience of listmembers.  
With  my pair of recently acquired Celestron Skymaster 20x80's, would I have been 
 able to resolve any of the station's structure?
