Satellite Tracking

Post by clarenceseesstars »

Hi all

Anyone here has had experience doing satellite tracking using their telescope mounts? In particular the International Space Station? I'm starting on a project to make use of the Meade LX850 to do satellite tracking. On paper, the mount can slew up to 3deg/s -- which may or may not be sufficient for the whole path, but still interested to try. Let me know if anyone has prior experience, or hearsay rumours, with satellite tracking and the software you were using.

Thanks for reading!
