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!
