Take a look at astronaut Cai Xuzhe's cabin on the Chinese Space Station, it doesn't look bad at all...

China's Wentian lab module was moved to the "side port of the space station's node cabin," on Sept. 30, 2022. The Tiangong space station is now in an L shape as a result. I stacked "76" images. I imaged on 10-15-22  with a max pass of 77  from my Manorville, NY observatory.  :-)
