Now, could you do something like use a capture card and OpenCV to use 
the camera to aim the dish by observation rather than by prediction?

Could you track the ISS with such a device?  If you could I wouldn't 
want to get in the way of the rotator and beam as it swings.  It would 
probably bat you into LEO!
