PAN at its new slot at 45.0 E
Below is an image I shot in the evening of May 9, under not too good conditions (moonlight, and some twilight left).
It shows PAN (09-047A) in its new position at 45.0 E, following the relocation from 49.0 E early May.
Image was shot using the Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar MC 2.8/180 mm.
