    I am  going to get a 200mm lens for my camera, so that I can do that. I want 
    to find the following milstar
    
    Milstar DFS 1   30.0  0.0  0.0 -0.2 d   30       35799 x 35780 km
    1 22988U 94  9  A 99280.56453591  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    00
    2 22988   0.0100 275.8000 0002253   0.0000 182.3900  1.00271000    00
    
    Those elements are very old, and if it is near it last reported position of 
    120 degrees west, which is close to the echostar 2 sat, then I should have 
    not to much trouble taking a picture of it.
    
    The new milstar should be at 90 degrees West as that is where it was going 
    to be placed. That's if it isn't there already.
    Anyone spot the following recently
    
    Unknown 010313                                   35792 x 35784 km
    1 90009U 01572A   01079.69323688  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    08
    2 90009   2.8500 327.2334 0001000  10.1067 349.8933  1.00278524    03
    
    Thanks

    It always seemed to me that geosats would be the easiest to discover.
    Simply take a series of unguided photos covering the equatorial band.
    Any new geosat would quickly show up.
