This is a Lunar Transit Graph over the Jupiter Space Station as taken on November 1, 1998 on our 12' 1296 Mhz System.  The 58 minutes covers a 3 beamwidth transit of the Moon.  Unlike the solar transit below, we started the lunar targetting in the center of the dish beam to insure maximum relative dB gain.  The relative dB shows a .25 dB change in total power as measured from a quiet sky to a lunar noise floor.
