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!
