The video stream from Soyuz seems far from ideal.

Video isn't the prime thing they're worried about getting back on the ground and monitoring. It's the telemetry and comms that have priority.

ISS getting big... but it still has to get a lot bigger in that view for docking.  Soyuz closing at 9m/s at this point.

3.5km.  Coming up soon on a series of burns to slow rate of approach and align Soyuz for docking.

Peggy Whitson should surpass record for most-days-in-space by NASA astronaut on April 24 under nominal mission timeline.

SKD burn complete.  Soyuz not approaching much slowly than it was before.  Now 1.6km away approaching at 4m/s.  Still has to slow to 0.1m/s for docking.
