First night using Satellite Tracker
« on: June 03, 2015, 05:03:53 PM »
This is the result of my first night using Satellite Tracker. Three passes in one night and I managed to catch the ISS on the third one. Video is on YouTube. https://youtu.be/aW0MZnWEkqY

Steven, That is very impressive! And even more so on your first night. No doubt you are now hooked. It encourages me to try too. I have a Celestron CPC1100 which so far I have used exclusively to image point-source tumbling rocket bodies. Looks like your camera performed well. Do you have some comments on it?

Thanks.

... Phil

That is amazing for a 6" scope, my first success was not nearly as nice, did you use a barlow in front of the ZWO camera ? and what kind of mount are you using ?
