Finally I got it right. This morning there was a bright pass of the International Space Station - magnitude -3.1 at 6am (an hour before sunrise). There was a convenient power outage that reduced light pollution. Now lens condensation from ground fog, no lens cap obscuring the sky and the ISS was where it was supposed to be.
