It was incredibly faint and fast moving, but I managed to catch TESS during its Earth flyby. Celestron 8 SCT with HyperStar at f/2, Atik 490EX monochrome camera, 3x3 binning, 5-second exposures. This is 3 images stacked on the spacecraft trail. It is almost invisible in the single exposures! This was at 03:45UT. The spacecraft was 18,400 miles away.
