As a sample here is a frame from the 25th May pass, resolution and exposure here is good enough to show the separation (circa 4.5m) in the main solar panel array.

14th Dec 2001. Shuttle Endeavour STS-108 docked to ISS. The main panels are almost edge on - hence very dim


This image (25th May 2001) shows detail in the Thermal Control System (TCS) panels - these panels are a concertina construction and you can see three shadows across the panel just below the main solar cells. Also visible lower right on the end of the main body are the Destiny lab and the Canada robot arm.

A short extract from the full 7th June evening pass showing the flare from the main P6 solar array as the ISS recedes over Europe.
