Thank you to all who helped me with NOVA.  I really feel dumb about my 
mistake of not looking up the REAL name of a satellite.  I appreciate no 
one mentioning my ignorance.

Thank you to all who commented on my camera on a beam.  I forgot about 
the need for a telephoto lens.  I also was not thinking about the 
advantage of the az-el rotator with respect to looking around the 
neighborhood(thanks Bob!). If I could get the correct keps, maybe I 
could even follow movement.  Don't be surprised if I post some unusual 
photos instead of the green cheese on the moon.

I have been a Ham for over 50 years and I am still trying to figure all 
of this stuff out.  Working satellites has been my highlight of my 50+ 
years.  This is one helluva great hobby!

Thanks Everyone,
